Will employees represented by Teamsters 2010 be subject to the background check policy?

The intent of PPSM 21 is that it will apply to represented as well as non- represented employees in defining designated critical positions and the processes associated with conducting background checks.   Existing work rules for represented positions are assumed to be consistent with these requirements of the policy.   Where they may differ, the collective bargaining agreement prevails.

Departments considering actions that may change employee terms and conditions of employment including reorganizations or changes in work rules, should consult with their HR Partner regarding a possible bargaining obligation.
