What are the Lines of Progression?
Lines of progression are the career paths that
employees can choose to take.
The last time we did a broad look at our lines of
progression was nearly 50 years ago. As you can
imagine, a lot of things have changed since then.
Many of our existing line of progressions don’t
reflect today’s job duties, processes, technology,
training requirements and tools.
Agreements are the result of nearly 2 years of
collaboration between IBEW and PG&E .
