COVID-19 extensions
Updated On: Sep 17, 2020
As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Company will continue to eliminate the annual limit
on the number of hours an employee can utilize on Bright Horizon back-up care benefits and will pay for
all hours an employee utilizes on such benefits instead of having that funding come out of the ACFC
Committee funds. The annual hours limit (160 hours) and the ACFC funding will be reinstated when an
hour limit is instituted for management employees. Additionally, from March 16th through the
reinstatement of an hours limit, any hours an employee utilizes on Bright Horizon back-up care benefits
will not be counted towards their annual limit.

Re: COVID-19 Work At Home – Second Renewal

Dear Mike,
As a result of the current COVID-19 outbreak, through September 30, 2020 certain
eligible associates shall be entitled to work at home on a voluntary basis. Management will
determine how many associates are eligible to work at home by title, location and work group,
and associates in the eligible title, location and work group will volunteer to work at home. If
there are more volunteers in a particular title, location and work group than management
determines are eligible to work at home, volunteers will be selected by seniority. Every accepted
volunteer’s wages, benefits and other terms and conditions of employment will continue to be
governed by the applicable collective bargaining agreement.
Accepted volunteers will be responsible for installing and maintaining all Company
property provided to them in order to perform work at home. While working at home, it is the
accepted volunteer’s responsibility to comply with all Company rules and policies. For example,
all accepted volunteers must use all Company property in accordance with Company rules and
policies and protect Company and customer proprietary information in accordance with such
rules and policies. Management retains the discretion to terminate an accepted volunteer’s
temporary work at home arrangement if an accepted volunteer fails to abide by the Company’s
work rules or policies. If any accepted volunteer comes to their normal reporting location during
their temporary work at home arrangement (and he/she can only do so with approval), no
payment for mileage or travel time will be made.

Upon written notice to the Company, an associate may withdraw from work-at-home. If
an associate does so, he/she will only be eligible to subsequently re-elect work-from-home at the

Company’s discretion. The Company will honor an associate’s notice to withdraw from work-
at-home as soon as practical (generally within 14 days but no more than 30 days). In the interim,

the associate will continue to work at home.
This agreement is without prejudice or precedent to any position that any party to this
agreement may wish to take in any other proceeding involving any matter. This agreement, and
the underlying facts related to this agreement, shall not be cited by any party in any proceeding
in any forum including, but not limited to, any arbitration or matter before any federal, state or
local court or administrative agency, involving any matter, except as necessary to enforce the
terms of this agreement.
Please indicate your agreement with the above by signing a copy of this letter where
indicated and returning it to me.
Very truly yours,

Thomas J Stribling
Executive Director - Labor Relations
