working hours

The organization I work for uses “contracts” for their employees and they are paid for the same number of hours each week. Several employees arrive 10 to 15 minutes late to their work stations on a daily basis and also leave 1/2 hour or more early every day when their work is done. What, besides re-negotiating with the bargaining unit the concept of “contracts”, can management do to rectify this issue?

Does the contract allow employees to set their own work hours? If not, the employer still has a right to establish work start and stop times and implement the progressive disciplinary process to address violations.

If the contract does allow employees to set their own start and stop times, you will need to abide by the terms of the agreed-upon contract until/unless the issue can be re-negotiated.
