California Seasonal Lifeguards Plan For 2016 Contract Negotiations

By  John Knight, CSLEA Member S

SAN DIEGO- On August 21, 2015, nine Seasonal Lifeguard (SLG) leaders met with California Association of Law Enforcement Employees (CALEE)  President Ricardo Sanchez in San Diego at the Doubletree Mission Valley Hotel to learn more about their association and to prepare for 2016 contract negotiations.  They attended various classes in conjunction with the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association  Membership Appreciation Lunch held at Mission Bay Park August 22, 2015.


"CSLEA offered classes about upcoming contract negotiations and site representation training," said Sanchez.  "As president of CALEE, I met with Seasonal Lifeguard leaders from the entire state to discuss contract  change proposals.  This is the first time the SLGs from all over the state have met together to plan for upcoming contract negotiations.  It was a very productive session."

CSLEA Membership Services Supervising Field Representative Richard Carrillo, Field Representative John Knight and CSLEA Supervising Legal Counsel David De La Riva were also present.

The first order on the agenda was to  organize the members so that they could discuss, form and draft necessary contract change proposals, and reach agreements on what proposals best serve SLGs throughout the state.  With California's diverse geography many areas have differing needs. The second order was to assign duties to draft, research proposals and to exchange ideas.  As this group of SLG leaders  form contract proposals, other meetings will be held.

"The guards worked together as a team and the foundation has been laid," said Sanchez.  " CALEE and CSLEA look  forward to working with the guards to achieve their goals."

SLG leaders who attended included:

Alex Shaner, Santa Cruz

Greg Shaner, Santa Cruz

MJ Brown, Ventura

Brandon Tran, Malibu

James Page, Malibu

Christopher Lee, San Clemente

Daniel O'Neil, Huntington

Todd Hartman, San Diego

Andrew Umlor, San Diego
