UCPEA Classification

Career Paths

In accordance with Article 31 of the UCPEA collective bargaining agreement Human Resources is in the process of redesigning the UCPEA Classification System. An important component of this redesign is comprehensively gathering information on the positions at the University performing UCPEA work. To support this collection of information, the Department of Human Resources requests all UCPEA employees to complete the Job Inventory Worksheet. Human Resources’ receipt of this information is an important aspect in building a new classification system that is useful and manageable for employees and managers alike. Please feel free to use the information on this page to help complete your worksheet, and thank you for your efforts.
