Gas Operations Line of Progression Update General Construction Gas Department October, 2014 Overview of the New Lines of Progression Background New Agreement Whats Changed Implementation Q&A
Resources What are the Lines of Progression? Lines of progression are the career paths that employees can choose to take. The last time we did a broad look at our lines of progression was nearly 50 years ago. As you can imagine, a lot of things have changed since then. Many of our existing line of progressions dont reflect todays job duties, processes, technology, training requirements and tools. Agreements are the result of nearly 2 years of collaboration between IBEW and PG&E . 4 Workgroups and Classifications

Overview of the New Lines of Progression General Construction Gas Department Highlights of New LOPs Create career paths, allowing employees to develop their expertise in a focused area. Consolidate classifications and remove outdated classifications. Standardize training and operator qualifications (OQs for each classification, maximizing training effectiveness and removing unnecessary training). Create internal inspector workforce.
