The HR Design Project proposes to radically change the rights accorded to UW employees. Years of precedent developed through labor agreements, civil service laws and personnel policies would be repealed.
The WUU prepared this analysis to examine the recommendations of the HR Design Project workgroups as they relate to the retention of employment rights on hiring, layoff, transfer, promotion and discipline and discharge. We also review employees’ access to due process to enforce fair implementation of the proposed policies. Finally, we evaluate the compliance of the Design Project's recommended policies with the Guiding Principles as to whether they have incorporated union contracts, Civil Service law and other campus policies.
