From that report:
To eventually remove collective bargaining rights for 700 union positions by turning them into Academic staff.
I understand that someone would lose their union rights, but the benefits for Academic staff are much better than those for Classified. I know a lot of people who would like to be re-classified as Academic Staff.
Pay based on years in service and the cost of living.
I think it should be a little of both(time on the job and merit). Just because someone has been at their job for a long time doesn't mean they're good at it. I know plenty of folks who really don't deserve a raise, but would get one under this plan.
The ability to apply for jobs without using a computer.
That's just a silly request.
The HR report has been out for a while and they're just now coming up with these requests. There was plenty of time during the process to present these. I just personally don't see the boogeyman in the new HR design.
