Fighting to protect member’s rights
Pay increase win after out-of-class discovery 


Our contract is a hard-won document that governs not only our wages and benefits and working conditions, but also includes hundreds of articles that govern how we do our work, schedule our leaves and how we interact with our supervisors. 

When we stand up and stand together against violations of those articles, we’re ensuring that we receive the full benefit of the contract we all worked hard to win. 

When our Unit 14 member was promoted to a Staff Services Analyst position, their personnel division did not place them in the proper pay range, claiming the member hadn’t spent the required time performing the work necessary to earn the higher range. 

Working with our Union Resource Center (URC), it was discovered that our member had, in fact, been working out-of-class for the past year. After completing a desk audit of work performed and filing a grievance, the Department of General Services agreed. 

Our member received not only an increase to the higher range but was granted back pay and experience credit for the time worked out-of-class.
