Personnel Rules, Policies & Contracts

Personnel Rules & Policies

The City of Coalinga believes it is in the best interest of the City and its employees to have written Personnel Rules. These rules include the conditions under which employees are employed, benefits applicable to City employees, and other matters regarding the terms and conditions of employment.

Many department/divisions have additional policies and procedures, which are necessary for their internal operations. It is the employee’s responsibility to also become familiar and comply with these department/division policies and procedures.

If the Personnel Rules are in conflict with the provisions of a duly executed Memorandum of Understanding or Employment Contract, the Memorandum of Understanding or Employment Contract is controlling.

Memoranda of Understanding

The City of Coalinga maintains a positive relationship with five bargaining units through an employment agreement called a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). A MOU contains information about wages, hours and working conditions as well as the fringe benefits for positions within the specific bargaining unit.
