Covered employees shall maintain a minimum of two sets of uniform clothing (pants and shirt) and one pair of CAL-OSHA approved fire safety boots (station boots). Uniform clothing and boots shall be maintained in a fully serviceable condition, clean, and free of signs of wear. Uniform items and boots that are faded, torn, or show similar signs of overuse may not be worn while on duty.
The District shall provide covered employees with an annual boot or safety shoe allowance of $250, payable in July of each year. The remainder of employees’ uniform clothing (defined above) replaced on an as-needed basis, as determined by the District, up to a maximum value of one uniform annually. The District shall inspect covered employees’ uniforms to determine whether a District-issued uniform is warranted or not.
