SUGGESTIONS FOR COMPLETING YOUR PDQ
(DHA CLASSIFICIATION STUDY)

The draft "Classification Review" released recently by management recommends, among other things, that the classifications of ES and HSS should be combined into a single classification with two levels. The classification review does not directly address the question of salaries, but it does state that the "cost impact" of upgrading some workers to a new higher-paid classification "will be somewhat mitigated" if other workers are moved to the lower proposed Level 1. This appears to contradict the DHA Director's prior assurances that no one will suffer a loss of pay or status as a result of the classification study.

In addition, the classification review appears to make a distinction between workers who are currently in the same classification, based on how closely they are supervised and whether they perform duties which are "structured and repetitive" and "routine" as opposed to workers with "responsible and difficult" assignments. It seems likely the department has chosen these factors as the most important criteria for the class study.
