1.1 The Employer recognizes the Union as the sole and exclusive bargaining agent for the purpose of establishing salaries, wages, hours, and other conditions of employment for all of its employees as outlined in the certification by the State of Minnesota Bureau of Mediation Services (BMS), dated October 16, 1986, in Case No. 87-PR-158 and as amended and as set forth in Section 1.2 below.

1.2 The bargaining unit covered by this Agreement shall consist of the following:  All office, clerical, administrative and technical personnel who are employed by Independent School District No. 625, Saint Paul, Minnesota, who work a minimum of fourteen (14) hours per week and sixty-seven (67) days per year, and who are public employees within the meaning of Minnesota Statute (M.S.) §179A.03, Subd. 14 in the classifications listed in Appendix B excluding supervisory, confidential and all other employees.

1.3           Any present or future employee who is not a Union member shall be required to contribute a fair share fee for services rendered by the Union and, upon notification by the Union, the Employer shall check off said fee from the earnings of the employee and transmit the same to the Union.  In no instance shall the required contribution exceed a pro rata share of the specific expenses incurred for services rendered by the representative in relationship to negotiations and administration of grievance procedures.  This provision shall remain operative only so long as specifically provided by Minnesota law, and as otherwise legal.

1.4 The Union agrees to indemnify and hold the Employer harmless against any and all claims, suits, orders or judgments brought or issued against the Employer as a result of any action taken or not taken by the Employer under the provisions of this Article 1, Section 1.3.
