Sutter Meet & Confer Update

Court Clerk IV Specifications

     UPE met and conferred with Sutter Court over changes to the class specifications for the internal recruitment of Court Clerk IVs.  The Court sought to expand the pool of potential applicants by allowing applicants to substitute other professional experience for serving two years as a Court Clerk III.  Under the new minimum qualifications, applicants must meet the following criteria:

1. Current Court Clerk III in Sutter Court 

2. Have demonstrated leadership experience 

3. Either:

    a. 2 years full time experience as a Court Clerk III

        OR

    b. Any equivalent professional experience

      UPE is supportive of the Court’s plan to create more opportunities for our members to advance.  However, UPE did question the Court over how broadly they were defining ‘demonstrated leadership experience’ and ‘equivalent professional experience’.  The Court is taking an expansive view of both in order to allow more workers the opportunity to advance.  The Court agreed to take into account previous leadership experience in other jobs and outside of work.  

      UPE proposed allowing workers to resubmit materials from the previous announcement when the new posting is released.  However, the Court intends to modify the supplemental questions which will necessitate workers to submit new answers.  The Court was unable to commit to a timetable for filling the position.  

      UPE thanks Board Members Jennifer Lambert and Jemy Mathews for their representation of our members’ interests during this meet and confer.
