    Identified Challenges • Lack of understanding of how the District specifically

    determines representation for classification specifications.

    • Some new unrepresented classifications appear to be similar to represented classifications.

    • Managers in the same union as subordinates may create challenges with discipline cases and grievances.

    • Perception that AFSCME represented positions have been reduced over time.

    Policy Recommendations Enhance the Criteria for Determining Unrepresented Employees: 1. Assistant Director-level and above classifications, 2. Administrative positions reporting to Unrepresented

    positions, or 3. Confidential Employees
