Citifield Staff:


At 12:04 today, the Mets HR Dept sent out another email reminding their employees that they must submit a photo of their vaccination card as proof of being FULLY vaccinated by DEC 31st.
THIS EMAIL WAS ONLY SENT TO THOSE WHO HAVE NOT YET SUBMITTED PROOF.
It is STRONGLY suggested that if you haven’t submitted your proof yet, that you do so immediately.
*** Remember, to be full vaccinated by DEC 31st means you must receive your Second Shot (or the single shot of Johnson & Johnson) no later than 12/17. ***
If you are adamant about not receiving the vaccination at all, you will no longer be able to be employed by the Mets…. Barring a religious or medical exemption.

Updated 3/12/22:


Listed below is the 2022 Seniority List.
For the benefit of those who were added onto the Seniority List this year.....
1- This is your number for the entire year. It never changes. You MUST put this number on the work slips when you submit your availability for each Homestand. 
2- As a List Person, depending on when you started working at Citifield,  it is MANDATORY that you WORK a minimum of either 20 or 30 events to keep yourself on the Seniority List AND to move up to the next pay level.  Failure to do so could (contractually) result in you being removed from the Seniority List and/or terminated.

Citifield Members:
Friday 12/31 is the last day to submit your Proof of Vaccination to the Mets HR department. If you have not done so, I strongly urge you to do it immediately and request a confirmation of receipt. Please “cc” me on that email.
If you have not yet been vaccinated, your only option at this point is to receive the Johnson and Johnson vaccine on or before December 31st. If you applied for an exemption and have not heard of a decision yet, I suggest that you follow up with HR regarding their decision

11/12/21..... 12/7/21

Reminder....Make sure you submit a photo of your vaccination card to HR before December 31, 2021.  Email your photo to Humanresources@nymets.com and ASK FOR A CONFIRMATION OF RECEIPT.  If you are not Fully vaccinated by 12/31, you will NOT be permitted to work at Citifield and your employment will be terminated.

Citifield Members:


Below is the email that everyone of us was supposed to receive about the soon to be COVID policy at Citifield. Please follow the instructions regarding the two (2) ways to verify that you are FULLY vaccinated. If you experience any difficulties in trying to submit photos of you vaccination card (front AND back), let me know by TEXT. Although the deadline to submit is DEC. 31, 2021, I strongly suggest that you do not delay in submitting your proof of vaccination.
If you are not vaccinated yet but decide to do so, do not delay in getting the first shot. There is a 28 day wait between the first and second shot (Moderna or Pfizer) plus you’re not considered to be fully vaccinated until 14 days after the second dose, so your second shot should be no later than 12/17. Only one shot is needed if you get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Please read below……


Good afternoon,
To ensure the ongoing health and safety of our employees, their families, and members of our communities, and consistent with the policy already in place for other employees and applicable law, moving forward Queens Ballpark Company, L.L.C will require all employees to be “fully vaccinated” for COVID-19. To that end, all employees must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by no later than December 31, 2021.
Should you decline to become fully vaccinated for COVID-19, you will be in violation of this policy and your employment with the Company will conclude as of the end of the year, December 31, 2021. As a reminder, individuals are considered “fully vaccinated” two weeks after receiving the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or two weeks after receiving the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Unvaccinated employees who do not intend to become “fully vaccinated” should contact Human Resources and their supervisor by October 8th to discuss next steps. Please note, employees who cannot receive the vaccine due to a qualifying disability or sincerely held religious belief should contact HR to engage in the interactive process. However, the only exceptions to this policy will be those required by law.
Employees can either email copies/pictures of their vaccine cards to humanresources@nymets.com or upload the documents on their Workday profile as follows:
When logged into Workday:
1. go to the “Personal Information” worklet on your homepage
2. Click “Worker Documents”
3. Click “Add” and follow the prompts to drop the file in
This policy will remain in effect until further notice, and the Organization reserves the right to modify this policy at any time in its sole discretion. Please contact Aubrey Wechsler or Eva Ramsaran in Human Resources if you have questions about this policy or if you need assistance finding a location to get vaccinated or scheduling an appointment.


Thank you,

To All Citi Field Members:


Below is the "Last On" list for Homestand #3.
(Tap on the photos to fully open)


WE ARE SHORT 6 PEOPLE ON SATURDAY MAY 14th. IF YOU DID NOT PUT YOURSELF DOWN TO WORK, PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU CAN MAKE YOURSELF AVAILABLE.


ANY SHAPER WHO HAS NOT MADE THEMSELVES AVAILABLE TO WORK ON MAY 14th, MUST NOW MAKE THEMSELVES AVAILABLE.

Use this list, as well as the list posted on the Unions Official web site (Local176.com), to find out if you are working a game in which you made yourselves available.
If you do not see yourself listed as working, there is still a possibility that work will reach you. In addition to having scratches every game, the Mets, at times, contact me saying that they are increasing the call due to higher than expected ticket sales. If I do need more people, I will contact you by TEXT.
One final note....
As a reminder, any shaper who makes themselves available for work, then turns it down when asked, will be penalized 2 shapes instead of one this year. This is necessitated due to some shapers availing themselves for every event hoping to build up their shape total, even though they really weren’t available.
If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you!
Kevin
