INSTRUCTIONS FOR CALLING IN SICK
Calls will no longer be taken at the Juneau Offices. All
employees will be required to call the Attendance Control Office (ACO).
The ACO office will accept calls 24/7 and is located at the Anchorage P&DC,
4141 Postmark Dr. Anchorage AK 99502-9998.
The Management Resources Database (MRD) facilitates the accurate collection
of leave data, including: Sick Leave, LWOP,
Sick Leave Dependent Care, Annual Leave data and hours used that qualify under
the Family Medical Leave Act each leave year.

Ask who you spoke with, document the time you called and then hang up.
YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO DO ANYTHING ELSE!
If the message taker wants to carry on a conversation of twenty questions,
state the following:
I AM TOO ILL TO SPEAK WITH YOU AND I AM NOT ON THE CLOCK;
THEREFORE, I DO NOT HAVE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS.
I WILL FOLLOW THE PROVISIONS OUTLINED IN THE ELM, SECTION 513.

Ask to see your steward for compensation.
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: UPON YOUR RETURN TO WORK
COMPLETE YOUR OWN 3971 AFTER YOU GET ON THE CLOCK. DO NOT SIGN THE 3971
UNTIL THE SUPERVISOR SIGNS. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, DO NOT SIGN THE COMPUTER GENERATED
3971 PRODUCED BY THE RMS SYSTEM. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO COMPLETE YOUR OWN LEAVE
SLIPS FOR ALL ABSENCES (IN DUPLICATE). TALK TO YOUR SUPERVISOR, TELL
THEM WHEN YOU CALLED IN AND WHOM YOU SPOKE WITH.
If any discipline is forthcoming it must come from your supervisor, not some
management message taker answering the phone.
THE RMD SYSTEM IS A DATABASE! THATS ALL.
If you are disciplined from this (or one of the many other) management database(s),
article 16 still applies:
MANAGEMENT MUST HAVE JUST CAUSE; request time with your steward and
grieve every violation.
