The pensions of unionized workers are defined as part of collective bargaining. The UC has entered into agreements with several unions to accept the retirement choice program, as outlined by the regents. Uc will negotiate in good faith with other unions. Pending the completion of the bargaining process, members of other unions are covered by the provisions of their existing retirement employment contracts. Details can be found in your collective agreement and in the corresponding old age pension documents. For more information on trading unit contacts, please see the contract preview and contacts in the General Information section. For more information on a particular bargaining unit`s contract and its provisions, see the left-hand links. UC Berkeley`s current bargaining units are listed in alphabetical order. The Higher Education Industrial Relations Act (HEERA) is the law that governs collective agreements and labour/management relations at the University of California. If you need help with work/management interactions, collective guidelines/agreements, or to resolve employment issues, contact the Laboratory and Industrial Relations (LER). ELR@ucsf.edu It is important to note that the full contract negotiations of our system-wide bargaining units with unions are conducted by the University of California, not by local campuses or health systems. Public Employment Relations Board (PERB): The Public Relations Council for Employment (PERB) is the agency legally designated for the designation of HEERA.
Perb is responsible for managing collective agreements for staff at California public schools, colleges and universities, as well as with California state staff. Perb also applies the status of collective agreements for staff of local public authorities in California (cities, counties and special districts). PerB certifies new bargaining units, judges unfair labour practices and listens to cases that workers raise against unions based on the “duty of fair representation” doctrine. Exclusive representative: An exclusive representative is a union representing a group of workers in a unit of collective agreements on wages, hours and other conditions of employment. The University of California is working hard to establish industrial relations and negotiate fair agreements with the 15 unions representing more than 77,000 employees. The university is committed to providing some of the most attractive compensation, benefits and opportunities to make it an employer of choice. The University of California, Berkeley currently has 16 different trading units on campus. Each bargaining unit has a separate contract with a union representing all workers covered by that unit. Labor and Employee Relations (LER) provides comprehensive professional services in the areas of labour relations and labour relations to a large number of campus clients and medical centers. LER serves as a resource not only for employees, supervisors and managers, but also as representatives of UCSF in work/management interactions. We help solve employment issues, help manage staff policy and practice, collective agreements, national and federal law, and regularly support the role of departmental advisors in partnership with our colleagues across human resources.
Non-exclusive representatives: Non-exclusive representatives are workers who do not report to a bargaining unit and who do not have an exclusive representative (i.e.:
