Updates and Review of L21 Job Classifications

For the past two years, the Union and the City have been meeting and conferring to review and update job specs. To date, both parties have made updates to approximately 40 job classifications.  Some of these job specs have not been updated since the 1990’s.

Incumbents are provided the opportunity to give input on the proposed changes.  Once the changes are made, the amended job specs are then submitted to the Civil Service Board for review and approval.  All job specs reviewed by the Union so far have been approved by the Civil Service Board for implementation.

Changes to job specs provide positive implications for our members. These updated job classifications can be used as a benchmark for desk audits especially for members who believe they are working out of classification.   It will also aid the City in improving its recruitment efforts and retaining talent in the rapidly changing job market, especially in the IT field.
