AFSCME Local 2170

Are you interested in safety at the workplace? We are still in need of City Hall Union Representatives for the 2022 - 2023 Safety Committee (representatives serve a one year term from May 1 to April 30, with no limit on terms).

All representatives (or alternates, if the regular representative is unable to attend) shall agree to attend all meetings. There will be four meetings for the 2022 – 2023 Safety Committee. Meetings are at 8:00 a.m. and vary in location (meetings have been held at the Emergency Operations Center, Parks Trails Shop, Public Works Shop, and several locations in City Hall). All representatives should be concerned about safety at the City and willing to openly, honestly, and respectfully discuss issues with the Safety Committee.

Please notify Cindy Moya x6513 or if you would like to be considered as a 2170 representative. There are no terms limits so if you are currently a representative and would like to continue in 2022 - 2023, please let Cindy know. Should more than one person wish to be a representative or alternate from a particular group, an election will be held.

Below is a list of the Safety Committee positions representing 2170:

1. AFSCME E-Board Representative: [Elected by E-Board for 2022-2023: Stephanie Rary (Lead); Jayson Gallaway (Alternate)]
2. City Hall Representative [Presently on the committee: VACANT (Lead); VACANT (Alternate)]
3. Airport/CS/Golf Representative [Presently on the committee: Tamar Dunn (Lead); David Peterson (Alternate)]
4. Public Works ROW Representative [Presently on the committee: Greg Durbin (Lead); Roger Rowland (Alternate)]

The duties of a Safety Committee member are as follows:

1. Attend all scheduled Central Safety Committee meetings or send an alternate when unable to personally attend.
2. Review safety and health inspections of City facilities or operations reports to help correct safety hazards.
3. Evaluate the supervisor’s employee injury report investigations to determine if the cause(s) of the unsafe situation was identified and corrected.
4. Evaluate the City’s workplace accident and illness prevention program and other policies and be willing to present and discuss recommendations for improvement, as needed.
5. Accept, forward, and present employee suggestions for safety program improvement that cannot be readily handled by the employee’s supervisor or department.
6. Promptly review minutes of previous meetings and suggest corrections, if necessary. Minutes are sent by email after each meeting.
