Article 2: Mutual Responsibility


This Agreement made and entered into between the Central New Mexico Community College (hereinafter referred to as the "Employer" or the "College") and the Communications Workers of America (hereinafter referred to as the "Union").


It is the purpose of this Agreement to promote harmonious relations between the Union and the Employer to establish rates of pay, hours of work and other terms and conditions of employment.


It is also the purpose of this Agreement to establish a procedure for the resolution of differences, and to ensure that the Union and the employees in the bargaining unit and the Employer utilize only the procedures contained in this Agreement to resolve any and all employment disputes that arise.


In accordance with Central New Mexico Community College Collective Bargaining Resolution, the College hereby recognizes the Communications Workers of America as the sole and exclusive bargaining agent with respect to wages, hours and other terms and conditions of employment for all non‑probationary/non‑trial employees covered by this Agreement.


The parties are in agreement that collective bargaining will continue as long as the Governing Board Policy on Labor Management Relations exists, permitting negotiations between the parties as long as it is not in conflict with the Public Employee Bargaining Act.


This Agreement is the only Agreement between the parties and replaces any and all previous agreements.


The employees covered by this Agreement are all full and part‑time non‑probationary/non-­trial employees in the Maintenance and Operations Departments in the following job classifications:

Operations I, Maintenance I, Maintenance II, Maintenance III, and Utility Custodian. Job titles are found in Appendix A and will be updated as necessary. Additional job titles can only be added to the bargaining unit by the State of New Mexico Public Employee Labor Relations Board action or mutual agreement of the parties.


During the term of this Agreement the parties agree that the Employer may, at its discretion, revise, amend or eliminate classification titles consistent with Article 22 so long as doing so does not result in a reduction in pay rates during the term of this Agreement. The new titles created shall be considered successor titles to those identified herein and this Article will be considered amended to include those titles.
