Recognizing that the size of classes has an impact on the work load of the employee, the University and the Union agree that:
1. At the Union's request, once during the first half of each of Terms I and II, each department chairperson, or designee, shall arrange a meeting with interested employees in the department and with the Union Representative, designated pursuant to Article XV B. to discuss class size.
2. The current departmental class size policy, if any, shall be available for review by departmental employees; where no such class size policy exists, or where the departmental policy has not set maximum enrollments for sections in courses which utilize employees, departments will be encouraged to formulate a class size policy which sets maximum enrollment.
3. The department will have available, in writing, the method(s) for handling override authorization forms and person(s) who are authorized signers. No GSI shall be required to accept enrollees in excess of the maximum class or section size. Should a GSI wish to add enrollees beyond the established maximum, there will be no presumption of a change in appointment fraction.
4. The special conference procedure (as set forth in Article XVI) shall be available to discuss Union concerns about specific departmental class sizes or class size policies as they relate to courses which utilize employees.
