Previous Collective Bargaining Agreements

UNIT REPRESENTATION & EMPLOYEE ORGANIZATIONS

The Michigan Civil Service Commission has established an Employee-Employer Relations Rule which creates a system of collective bargaining for determining conditions of employment including compensation for state classified employees. Upon election of an exclusive representative, all conditions of employment for unit employees are established through negotiations between the Office of the State Employer, as the Governor's representative, and the exclusive representative.

The Rule provides for the state personnel director to establish bargaining units of eligible employees in broad occupational groups with a community of interest. Currently there are 11 units eligible for collective bargaining; of these, 10 units comprising approximately 71% of the total state classified work force are represented by exclusive representatives. Employees in supervisory, managerial and confidential positions are ineligible for exclusive representation and collective bargaining.

The following chart provides a brief description of each unit, identifies the exclusive organization which represents employees in the unit, and offers a link to the contract covering employees in the unit.
