Article 16 – Clerical Provisions


16.1 Comfort Standards

A goal of the District is to provide working environments for unit members that are safe, healthy and avoid exposure to repetitive strain risks. The parties recognize the desirability for comfortable and ergonomically correct work station standards for employees. Employees will not be assigned to a location that is incompatible with their ergonomic accommodations.

16.2 Career Pathways and Promotional Provisions

Promotional preference will be given to internal candidates who:

  • Have reached step 5 in their classification,
  • Have at least two (2) recent (within three (3) years of this application) performance evaluations of at least “competent and effective”, and
  • Meet the minimum qualification of the position.

An employee who has not been evaluated within three (3) years of the application shall be deemed to have met the performance evaluation criterion set forth above unless there is disciplinary documentation in the personnel file regarding events within that time period.

16.2.1 Applicants meeting these criteria will be interviewed for promotions and will be prioritized for interviews and considerations for the position before any external candidates are interviewed.

For permanent civil service positions, interviews will be conducted when internal applicants are reachable on the civil service list.

If there are more than 5 internal applicants meeting the criteria, at least those 5 with the greatest years of service to the district will be interviewed.

16.3 Clerical workers shall be provided with a written description of the work per site to be completed during their shift and when break periods are to occur. By mutual agreement between the supervisor and the employee break periods may be left to the discretion of the worker. Except where essential services will be impacted, the length of the unpaid lunch period will always be left to the discretion of the worker, but shall not exceed one (1) hour.
