OFFICE CLERICAL SERIES RESTRUCTURING
The UCS Division of Human Resources recently sent out letters in regard to the restructuring of the Officer Clerical Series titles and job descriptions to employees within that title series. Upon information supplied to CSEA, all employees in the title series should have received that letter indicating the change in title. HR stated in the letter that they “recently conducted a review of the Office Clerical series to simplify the series, improve promotional opportunities and broadband (combine) sub-series to account for changes in court operations” – in my view, they updated and modernized outdated language and restructured/renamed titles. I have received multiple inquires regarding the motives/reasoning for these changes and can only offer my opinion that it was an update. Some members are insulted by the new title. Be assured, it is only a change in title and there is no demotion or change in pay. Presumably, no one’s day-to-day responsibilities will change as a result of this update. Please note two things: We (CSEA) were not part of this process and had no influence on the words chosen for the restructured titles; and all titles within the series were changed, not just Grade 12 SCOAs.
