Changing An Employee's Work Schedule

At Anoka Tech we approach changes in our community with an open and innovative attitude. As a result, there are times when we need to adjust our schedule to meet the needs of our community and our students. When those times occur we work within the parameters of the collective bargaining agreements to change our employee's work schedules.

Use the Notice of Change of Employee Hours form to post changes to employee hours according to the collective bargaining agreements.
