Confidential Employee - Bargaining Unit Status

Confidential Conditions of Employment
A position is identified as a confidential position due to the nature of job responsibilities which give the employee potential access to information subject to use by the employer in negotiating and/or access to information that raises a conflict of interest with other bargaining unit employees. Therefore, the position is exempt from coverage by the AFSCME Collective Bargaining Agreement. A confidential employee cannot be a member of the union and cannot pay dues to the union.

A confidential employee is paid on the same pay grade and receives the same health insurance benefits as AFSCME bargaining unit employees in the same classification.

A confidential position is covered by the provisions of the State Board of Regents Merit System Rules. Both organized and non-organized board of Regents merit employees may apply and compete for this position as promotion, demotion, or transfer applicants. Merit System Rules on pay on promotion, demotion, and transfer apply.
