Unless mutually agreed to, all classifications covered within bargaining unit 75, Health Professionals, shall utilize the following for comparable agency purposes:
Alameda County, Contra Costa County, Marin County, Napa County, Sacramento County, San Luis Obispo County, San Mateo County, and Solano County, shall all be included as comparable agencies.
Within seven days of ratification of this MOU, ESC shall add two agencies from the following list: Monterey County, Santa Cruz County, and Santa Clara County.
The benchmark market average will henceforth be determined by ascertaining the total compensation of each benchmark classification within each agency within the composite list of ten agencies then removing the agency with the highest and the agency with the lowest total compensation per benchmark classification.
For purposes of understanding market data in applicable classification studies, the top-step salary of comparable job classifications within the composite list of ten agencies will be determined, then the agency showing the highest and the agency showing the lowest top-step salary will be removed from the calculation. At least four match classes must exist in the calculation in order to conclude there is sufficient market data.
