  • The spring 2022 open period for filing a transfer request runs from April 15, 2022 – April 30, 2022.  It will be posted in Between the Blades for the duration of the open period. The link will be posted on the LR Website on the 15th as well.
  • If an employee has been on his/her shift for six months, he/she may request a transfer to another shift to a job within his/her job classification and Center.
  • If such job is held by a less senior employee for at least six months, the transfer shall be made within 30 days of the request for such transfer.
