608.07000 – Waiver by Union; Contract Waivers; Bargaining History Estoppel; Disclaimer; Supersession
CSEA did not clearly and unmistakably waive its right to negotiate the change in policy. The word “assign” in the District Rights clause does not clearly convey the right to permanently transfer work outside the ERT classification without first negotiating with CSEA. The Higher Classification provision merely allows higher pay for an employee temporarily assigned to perform work in a higher classification.
