K-State Employees Consider Leaving Civil Service

KSAL StaffMay 1, 2013
Hundreds of classified employees of Kansas State University are discussing whether to no longer be civil service employees.

Hundreds of classified employees of Kansas State University are discussing whether to no longer be civil service employees.

The employees are scheduled to meet this week to discuss the move, which would remove them from the control of the Legislature. A vote would not come until November.

Similar committees of classified employees have formed at Wichita State and Emporia State universities.

The Kansas State employees will consider becoming university support staff, giving the school authority to make decisions on pay and other job-related issues.

Nearly 1,800 classified employees at Kansas State include custodial staff and some administrative and supervisory workers. Those employees receive hourly wages and don’t have contracts.

Classified employees at the University of Kansas made a similar move two years ago.
