      An employee desiring a lateral transfer shall submit a written request to the Custodial Services Office stating the specific reasons for the requested transfer.  These requests will be kept on file in the Custodial Services Department and reviewed when a vacancy occurs.  Generally, lateral assignments will be made by Master Agreement seniority unless there are extenuating circumstances.  Employees, who have submitted a lateral request and are notified that they are awarded the lateral assignment, will not be able to reject the offer. 
    2. Any vacant position (Custodial Worker 1 and Custodial Worker 2) which is posted will include the shift and days off.

      a.  Shift preference bids (postings will include days off)
      b.  Promotion bids (Custodial Worker 1 to Custodial Worker 2)
    4. Employees who have submitted a bid for shift preference may withdraw their bid during the posting period.  Unless the bid is pulled PRIOR to the bid deadline, the successful bidder must accept the bid award.
    5. Employees who have submitted a bid for promotion will have 24 hours after the bid award to accept or reject the bid.
