Title

Human Resources Department recommending the Board adopt and authorize the Chair to sign the negotiated Letter of Agreement to the Memorandum of Understanding between the County of El Dorado and El Dorado County Employees’ Association, Local No. 1, representing the General, Professional, and Supervisory bargaining units.

 

FUNDING:  N/A

Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

County of El Dorado (County) and El Dorado County Employees’ Association, Local No. 1 (Local 1), representing employees in the General, Professional, and Supervisory bargaining units, have an executed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the period of July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2020.

 

On May 22, 2018, the Board of Supervisors approved a classification title change from Sr. Environmental Health Specialist to Environmental Health Specialist III.

 

The current MOU provides for a Hazardous Material Assignment Differential to certain employees performing hazardous material duties in the classification of Sr. Environmental Health Specialist.  In order to demonstrate to CalPERS that the classification of Environmental Health Specialist III is eligible for the Hazardous Material Assignment Differential, it is necessary to amend the MOU to conform to the classification title change. 

 

County and Local 1 have reached an agreement to amend the MOU provision accordingly.

 

The Letter of Agreement (LOA) shall become of full force and effect upon approval and adoption by the Board of Supervisors and shall remain in effect until modified by a successor MOU.
