Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

 

Human Resources received a request from the Department of Environmental Management to change one Administrative Analyst I/II allocation (Position #1472) from the Professional (PL) bargaining unit to the Confidential (CO) bargaining unit.  Currently there are zero positions with a CO designation assigned to the department.  Additionally, it’s important to note that the department only has one (1) administrative support position.  Human Resources evaluated the request for the bargaining unit designation change and an overview of the findings is below.

 

The current Administrative Analyst position provides direct support to the Director of Environmental Management (Director).

 

In accordance with the County’s Personnel Rules, and due to the nature of the duties assigned as well as additional duties anticipated to be assigned to this position, each department is authorized to have one (1) non-management support position designated as CO.

 

This change in designation will allow for the current Administrative Analyst to be more directly involved with sensitive department matters related to the support of the Director. 

 

In addition to the current duties performed by this position, duties that can be performed under the CO designation include, but are not limited to the following:

 

                     Providing direct executive level support to the Director, including the handling of sensitive and/or confidential information;

                     Providing confidential administrative support regarding matters of litigation (i.e., Meyers Landfill);

                     Assisting the Director with annual budget preparation, including potentially confidential budgetary information; and

                     Serving as the initial contact for phone calls, visitors, and incoming emails to the Director, which may include matters that are confidential in nature.

 

ALTERNATIVES

The Board may choose not to approve the bargaining unit change and direct Human Resources to conduct additional analysis.
