Personnel Administration; Maritime Academy Employees
(a) In order to provide state civil service employees of the California Maritime Academy with an opportunity to remain in the state civil service system, there shall be a transition period from January 1, 1994, to June 30, 1995, inclusive. Any civil service employee of the California Maritime Academy who does not transfer with the California Maritime Academy to the California State University system shall be eligible for all job placement provisions available pursuant to Sections 19998 and 19998.1. Any civil service employee who does not intend to transfer with the academy to the California State University system prior to July 1, 1995, must file a statement, on or before December 30, 1994, in the form as the Director of the Department of Personnel Administration shall prescribe rejecting employment in the California State University. Those employees shall be subject to state civil service layoff and reemployment in accordance with Part 2 (commencing with Section 18500), regulations adopted pursuant to those provisions, provisions of applicable memoranda of understanding, or any other provision governing layoff and reemployment within the state civil service. Any employee who does not file the statement rejecting California State University employment shall be considered an employee of the California State University, effective July 1, 1995.
(b) In order to provide for the orderly transition of California Maritime Academy employees from the state civil service to the California State University, the following shall apply:
(1) The terms of any memorandum of understanding shall remain in effect until the memorandum of understanding expires or is amended or replaced.
(2) After January 1, 1994, employees of the California Maritime Academy, with the agreement of the exclusive representative and the Trustees of the California State University, may petition the Public Employment Relations Board to effect a bargaining unit modification; however, any modification ordered by the board shall not be effective until July 1, 1995, at the earliest.
(3) If no modification is effected, the state classifications used by the California Maritime Academy on June 30, 1995, shall, on July 1, 1995, be placed in new bargaining units under the Higher Education Employer-Employee Relations Act (Chapter 12 (commencing with Section 3560) of Division 4 of Title 1) for the California Maritime Academy parallel to the bargaining units as they exist on June 30, 1995, and shall continue unless and until a unit modification is ordered by the Public Employment Relations Board.
(4) The exclusive representatives for each state bargaining unit representing California Maritime Academy employees, as those representatives and units exist on June 30, 1995, shall continue as the exclusive representatives for their respective bargaining units unless an election is called, but in no case may any such change in exclusive representative occur prior to July 1, 1995. An election is not required to be held, and if no election occurs, the exclusive representatives shall continue as the exclusive representatives with responsibility to meet and confer with the Trustees of the California State University or their designees on collective bargaining issues. Notwithstanding any provision of the act that added this section to the Government Code, and to the extent authorized by law, the scope of representation shall at least include any subject matter contained in the current memoranda of understanding.
