Show posts by logged in user and admin in the backend dashboard (1 post)

    I have users (contributors) who log into my WordPress backend admin to submit their posts. I don't want users seeing other users' posts. When a user logs in, he should just see his own posts in the backend admin area; in addition, I want the logged in user to see posts by the admin (user # 1).

    This is the working code I have in my functions.php file to display posts written by the logged in user in the backend:

    function posts_for_current_author($query) {
    	global $user_level;
    	if($query->is_admin && $user_level < 5) {
    		global $user_ID;
    		$query->set('author',  $user_ID);
    	return $query;
    add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'posts_for_current_author');

    My problem is this code only shows posts written by the logged in user; I want the user also to see posts written by the admin. How do I do it?

    Thank you,
