Along with the big win for more vacation time, the City has added another 64 hours to the 40 hours allowed for Dependent Care Accrual. The new yearly balance of 104 hours will be allowed for Dependent Care time effective immediately and is being retroactively dated for July 1st, 2018.
What does this mean? It means that whatever your current balance is, the City of Portland will be adding an additional 64 hours to your Dependent Care Bank. For example, if you have used all your current hours (40 hours) you will have an additional 64 added to the bank and if you have not used any you still have the additional 64 hours added it will just be capped at 104 hours.
Another big win to go along with the additional Vacation Time for our Unions.
