35481RE: [scrumdevelopment] Scrum adoption in union environments.
- Dec 24, 2008
I’m working in a State agency, and, yes, they are unionized. The contract defines roles and relates that directly to pay and other compensation (such as how and whether comp time is accrued). So, if an IS5 is doing something such as database design, the contract would indicate that, for the period of time that worker is doing higher-than-IS5 tasks, the worker should be given a work-out-of-class differential.

In times of stress, I like to turn to the wisdom of my Portuguese waitress,
who said: "Olá, meu nome é Marisol e eu serei sua garçonete."
