Planting and harvestion coffee. The majority of the workdays are spent on one’s feet, constant movement and outdoors. Workers are rarely in one place as they move from one field to another for any period of time. It is estimated that 70% will be dedicated to growing and maintaining coffee plantations, citrus and plantains and 30% will be dedicated to harvesting the products. Workers must be able to stand, walk uphill and downhill, sit, sloop, squat, kneel, crouch, bend (from the waist) push, pull, reach, lift and carry items weighing in the range of 5 to 60 pounds. Workers are required to hand pick ripe coffee, for no less than 80% of the total harvest, with a basket around the waist with a minimum rate of 28 pounds per hour, 7 to eight hours per day. The worker may be requested but not required to work 12 hours per day and/or on the Sabbath or Federal Holidays depending upon the conditions in the fields, weather, and maturity of the crop; in such case, applicable overtime norms will be applied. Skilled laborers may be able to pick a little over an “almud” in one hour. The manager or supervisor will advise workers at the end of the workday if there is any change in start and time anticipated hours of work for the following day. Regular attendance by all workers during schedule hours of the workday and /or work period is expected. Unsatisfactory attendance; including reporting late, excessive request to leave before the end of the workday quitting early, etc., may be cause for disciplinary action. Workers must call their manager or supervisor as far in advance possible prior to the start of the workday if they do not expect to be in on time.
