  1. Notices and advertisements for all vacant positions will not contain unnecessary or discriminatory barriers that would screen out potential employees for reasons unrelated to qualifications, merit, or occupational requirements; 
  1. Station Duty Operators will be governed by the transfer process outlined in the Memorandum of Understanding currently in place; 
  1. All appointments or promotions to a senior officer rank and excluded positions will be submitted to the Board for approval on an individual basis; and
