Title
Facilities Services Job Descriptions - Bargaining Unit Positions

Discussion
Facilities services is proposing the following bargaining unit job description changes as described:

1. Custodial Coordinator - This job description is being revised to more accurately reflect the current job duties; no change to pay grade is proposed.
  • A qualification to be licensed in Lawn/Ornamental and Structural Pesticide Application, which is a necessary component of the position's duties, has been added.
  • A performance requirement to coordinate the Integrated Pest Management program district-wide has been added.
2. Electronics Technician I / II / III - The job descriptions for Intercom Repair Mechanic I/II/III and Fire Alarm Repair Mechanic I/II/III are being eliminated and a new job description is being created for the repair of all low-voltage systems to increase flexibility and productivity.  Pay grade is changed from Bargaining Grades 25/26/27 to Bargaining Grades 27/28/29 respectively.
  • A qualification for both fire alarm and intercom certification training has been added.
  • A qualification for  a Fire Alarm System Agent license from the Florida Electrical Contractors' Licensing Board has been added.
  • Performance requirements have been revised to require the repair of all low-voltage systems.
3. Environmental Specialist - This job description is being revised to more accurately reflect the current job duties; no change to pay grade is proposed.
  • A qualification for a Fire Safety Inspector certification, which is a necessary component of the position's duties, has been added.
  • A performance requirement for the application of Integrated Pest Management products, which is performed by another job category, has been deleted.
4. Facilities Fund Accountant - Because Capital Funds for the Facilities Services Division are currently managed by a Project Administrative Specialist II, whose primary job duties are structured for the administration of construction projects, a new job description is required.  Pay grade is being changed from Bargaining Grade 26 to Professional/Technical Hourly Grade LL.
  • Qualifications and performance requirements are based on the job description for a Fund Accountant, with modifications as appropriate for the Facilities Services Division.
5. Training Custodian - The job description is being revised to incorporate both lawn/ornamental and structural pesticide application licensure.  A pay grade increase from GG to HH is sought in consideration of the increased duties and licensure requirement.
  • The need to perform pesticide and fungicide applications and pest exclusion/relocation has been added to the responsibilities of this role.
6. Grounds Maintenance Technician - This job description is being revised to incorporate lawn and ornamental herbicide application licensure.  A pay grade increase from IUPAT 15 to IUPAT 16 is sought in consideration of the increased duties and licensure requirement.
  • The application of herbicide sprays and/or granules for weed and insect control has been added to the responsibilities for this role.
