Employee Relations

The Rhode Island Board of Education recognizes five collective bargaining units representing various employees at the Community College of Rhode Island. They are:

Through negotiations with these collective bargaining units, the State of Rhode Island, Board of Education, and/or the College administration establishes many of the conditions of employment, benefits, and policies contained in this handbook.  If you are a member of one of these bargaining units, please be sure to refer to your bargaining agreement for more information

Non-Classified, non-faculty employees of CCRI who are not covered by one of the aforementioned bargaining units are governed by the Rhode Island Board of Education Personnel Policies Manual.  Classified non-union employees are governed by the State of Rhode Island Merit System and Personnel Policies.  Board of Education or State Classified Personnel Policies shall prevail should there be a discrepancy between this handbook and those policies.
