CBA Article 34


The Employer may determine and provide necessary tools and equipment. The Employer will repair or replace employer-provided tools and equipment if damaged or worn out beyond usefulness in the normal course of business. This includes, but is not limited to tote bags, carriers with wheels, and electronic equipment. Employees are accountable for equipment and/or tools assigned to them and will maintain them in a clean and serviceable condition. Employees who misuse, vandalize, lose or damage state property may be subject to disciplinary action. Employees will be required to return all Employer provided tools and equipment (i.e., electronic equipment, badges, keys, etc.) upon separation from employment. In those cases where an employee fails to return the provided tools and equipment, the Employer may deduct the value of the items from the employee’s final pay.
