Article 36 Work Performed By Supervisors

36.1 A supervisor's primary function is the direction of employees provided, however, this shall not prohibit a supervisor from performing experimental work, work performed in connection with instructing and training employees, work required because of accidents or absenteeism or emergencies which, under the circumstances then prevailing, it would be unreasonable to assign to an employee, due to the short duration of the work or the unavailability of employees.
