THE FOUR-DAY, FORTY-HOUR WORKWEEK FOR MAINTENANCE ACTIVITIES

This report presents the results of a four day forty-hour workweek pilot study. The impetus for this pilot study was generated from two directions: The Governor's Efficency Study Commission, and the energy crisis of 1973-74. The results of the pilot study are grouped into five general catagories. Productivity, equipment, personnel, administration and procedure, and public relations. Based on the support and the potential advantages indicated by the four day work week pilot study, a four day maintenance work week was implemented during 1975. It was recommended that those economic advantages gained by the four day work be diverted to increase service value in order to partially offset increased cost of maintenance and proposed reductions in maintenance appropriations.
