AALA’s Unit J members are classified employees, and their positions are overseen by the Personnel Commission. From time to time the District has difficulty recruiting for certain skilled positions. In such cases the Personnel Commission may recommend a certification differential to encourage qualified people to apply. On January 20, 2015, AALA and the District signed off on a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to offer a certification differential for Senior Design Network Engineer.
