The following table includes all full-time, part-time and temporary employees of Xcel Energy, but excludes contractors and employees on leaves of absence. It breaks down our workforce by state and by main job categories. Bargaining employees are full-time, permanent employees covered under collective bargaining agreements. Craft employees are temporary, project-specific employees also covered by collective bargaining agreements. Both bargaining and craft employees are combined to make up the percent of our workforce represented by unions. Non-bargaining employees consist of management and non-management employees based on the type of work they perform.
