Merit System Rules and AFSCME Contract
Organized Merit Information
Organized Merit positions are covered under the provisions of the AFSCME collective bargaining contract.
Non-Organized Merit Information
Non-Organized Supervisory Merit Employee Definition
Supervisory merit classifications fall within the non-organized pay matrix and are not covered by the AFSCME Collective Bargaining Agreement. An employee in a non-organized classification cannot be a member of the union and cannot pay dues to the union.
Non-Organized Confidential Merit Employee Definition
A position is identified as a confidential position due to the nature of job responsibilities which give the employee potential access to information subject to use by the employer in negotiating and/or access to information that raises a conflict of interest with other bargaining unit employees. Therefore, the position is exempt from coverage by the AFSCME Collective Bargaining Agreement. A confidential employee cannot be a member of the union and cannot pay dues to the union.
A confidential employee is paid on the same pay grade and receives the same health insurance benefits as AFSCME bargaining unit employees in the same classification.
A confidential position is covered by the provisions of the State Board of Regents Merit System Rules.
