WE’RE WORKING ON IT: clarification on temporary performance of higher duties

A GSU member has requested clarification on the “Temporary Performance of Higher Duties” provision of their collective agreement.  The employee feels they are performing duties that are above the job description set out for their position.

When employees are assigned to do duties that are above their job description, they are entitled to be paid the proper rate of pay for the period they are assigned to the increased responsibility. GSU staff rep Lawrence Maier is looking into the matter and will be communicating with the member before any further action is taken.

Contact your GSU staff rep for assistance with questions or concerns.

Your inquiry will be treated with strict confidentiality. Contact information for our staff reps is available here.
