The employer has designated each Regional Center as a department. Therefore, an Extension employee’s first bump shall be in the Regional Center, and if there is no bump, then the next choice would be in the same Collegiate/Administrative unit and Immediate Geographic area, as listed.
This agreement does not preclude or inhibit the Employer’s inherent management right to restructure and/or reorganize at a future date.
This agreement will be effective for the 2013-2015 contract.
