2. TRAVEL RATES

3. TRAVEL RATES • Travel rates are established by collective bargaining agreements or by law. • The University allows its travelers to be compensated in accordance with collective bargaining unit agreement rates.

4. TRAVEL RATES • As a guide, the Disbursing Office has compiled two travel matrixes for the different bargaining units to assist preparers in processing travel documents for travelers of the different bargaining units. • The travel matrixes are broken up into two groups: Non Bargaining Unit 07 and Bargaining Unit 07, (and their corresponding excluded Units).

5. TRAVEL RATES Note: If there is a conflict between the University’s APM and the provisions of a collective bargaining agreement, the provisions of the collective bargaining agreement will have precedence.
