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.

Below you will find a Survey Monkey link for a 2023 Information Update.  The NY Mets are requesting that everyone, whether you are on the Seniority List or a Shaper, fill this survey out before December 22, 2022.  This will help ensure that the Mets have your most recent up to date information.  This is very important in general, but even more important when you are needed to be contacted for training classes, for various reasons during the season, emergencies, etc.

I urge you to please do not hesitate to complete this survey.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

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:


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,

New York Mets Guest Experience Department

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 Shapers:


Congratulations on working your first year at Citifield.  I hope you found it an enjoyable experience and agree with what I told you all back during your interviews, that this is the best part time job ever! Many of you have work the 30 events needed to be added onto the Seniority list for next season. Some of you even worked enough to earn a bonus! Let me just say right now, “Job well done”!
Now, let’s get down to business. There are a few things I need to make you aware of.
Within the coming weeks, I/we will be sitting down with the Mets to discuss staffing for next year. All Shapers, whether you worked 1 or 80 events, will be reviewed.  At that time, a decision will be made on who to bring back and who we will be saying goodbye to. After we complete our discussions, and those decisions are made, everyone will receive either an email or text message informing you of the Mets decision. 
1- For those individuals who are returning and worked more than 30 events this season, you will be added onto the seniority list. The order in which the Shapers will be added onto the Seniority list will be based on the number of events worked this season, plus the number of events worked last year if you were a returning Shaper, and will be posted on the Local176.com website for a period of 30 days. You have the right to contest your position on the list within those 30 days. After that time, the list is final.
2- For those individuals who are invited back to be a Shaper again next year, because they did not work enough events to be added onto the Seniority list this year, your total events worked will be carried over for the 2023 season, which you will give you a head start over newly hired Shapers.
3- Lastly, we will unfortunately have a certain number of Shapers who will not be asked back for next season. This could be for a variety of reasons such as a lack of availability in general, job performance, not being available for those dates in which “All Shapers must be Available”, being a no show/no call, excessive lateness, etc.


Please monitor the Local176 website for the posting of those who will be added onto the Seniority List.

Thank you for your time and I hope to see many of you back at Citifield next year!

11/2/22: 

12/3/22: This list received no objections/contestations.  It is now FINAL.


Below is the list of Shapers, and the order in which, who are being added onto the Citifield Seniority List starting with the 2023 season.  Text me with any questions.

If you want to contest this list, you MUST  send a letter to the Executive Board with a detailed explanation of what you are contesting within 30 days of this posting.

Congratulations to all who were added onto the Seniority List.
