BY COUNCILOR GILBERT:
RESOLVED, that the proposed specifications for the new civil service classification of industrial painter, which were approved by the civil service board on November 7, 2006, and which are filed with the city clerk as Public Document No. _______________, are approved; that said classification shall be subject to the city’s collective bargaining unit with its basic unit employees; and that pay range for said classification shall be Range 29. The proper city officials are authorized to execute and implement an agreement with the union to provide for employing one or more unit members consistent with this resolution.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: An audit of two painter positions determined that the duties performed are significantly different from the current painter job description, which focuses on structural painting. The painters in the customer service division of public works & utilities are most often involved in the painting and rust-proofing of a variety of equipment and machinery, including meters, regulators, pumps, motors, pipes, valves, graders, water tower, etc. They are also involved in the fabrication of metal and fiberglass parts for vehicles. Based on the information in the audit, a new classification and job description were developed. The pay range negotiated for the classification is Range 29, $3,318 to $3,936 per month.
