Classification

Few issues in working life are as important as classification. When your job is under-classified, you do not receive the pay you deserve. And when the employer’s classification system is faulty, everyone’s job may be improperly valued.

The pages in this section begin by discussing how to challenge the classification of your position. This can be complicated, so speak with your steward or local officer before proceeding with a classification grievance.

The classification system itself is also reviewed in these pages. Understanding the system is not easy, but the guide offered here aims at taking away some of the mystery that surrounds classification.
