Dr. William E. Scheuerman, President
Dear Dr. Scheuerman:
This will confirm that, under provisions of Section 35.2 of this Agreement, temporary employees holding positions at a level of organization at which retrenchment will occur will be terminated before application of retrenchment to other employees at such level of organization.
With respect to the Chancellor's Discretionary Designated Leave option described in Section 35.3 (e), when the President or designee intends to request a waiver of the retrenched employee's potential contract grievances or a discontinuance of pending contract grievances, the President or designee shall inform such employee of the ability to request union representation during any discussions concerning such waiver or discontinuance. Any such request for union representation shall be in writing and shall be directed to the President or designee. The President, or designee, may grant or deny such request in writing. When such employee is informed about all aspects of the designated leave proposal, such employee shall receive five calendar days to consider and review such designated leave proposal.
Any waiver or discontinuance signed by such employee as part of a designated leave shall state that such employee:
If a retrenched employee agrees to the designated leave proposal, such employee shall receive the designated leave payment bi-weekly.
Where any employee utilizing the designated leave option is thereafter employed in a full-time capacity by the State during the designated leave period, the designated leave shall be deemed to cease upon commencement of such employment.
Please sign the enclosed copy of the letter and return it to me for my files.
William E. Scheuerman, President
