The initial resource for managers and employees.
Employee and Labor Relations (ELR) department works to enhance the relationship between the university and employees by providing direction and guidance on unions, policies, agreements and more. We work closely with both managers and supervisors in Davis and Sacramento to ensure the correct application of policies, procedures and laws are being used to manage a large, diverse, and round-the-clock workforce.
The Employee Relations unit provides employees and supervisors with the resolutions of work-related issues. They also provide consultation and advice to managers, supervisors and employees regarding Human Resources issues, including performance management, corrective actions, interpretation of policies and procedures and collective bargaining agreements, training of staff policy and procedures, FMLA, etc.
UC Davis Labor Relations is dedicated to creating and sustaining a positive work environment. We work to effectively communicate with the campus community on issues regarding collective bargaining, grievance processes, changes in labor law and more. We enhance understanding and create rapid solutions to other issues such like arbitrations, unfair labor practice charges and complaints to state agencies.
