Getting Involved: Union Members Take CSLEA Basic Site Representation Class

SACRAMENTO -  It wasn’t in a classroom, conference room, or office. In true physical-distancing style, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) Senior Counsel Andrea Perez conducted basic site representation training for four enthusiastic CSLEA members from the corner of a room in her house, while those eager to learn interacted from their homes as well.

“Work and work-related problems haven’t come to a halt due to the pandemic,” said Perez.  “We may be working in different environments, but we’re still dealing with our job duties, our colleagues, and our supervisors.  Add to that the host of other issues involving COVID-19 such as childcare, our children’s education, a lack of social interaction, uncertainty, there is a lot going on for our members, professionally and personally.  The more information we can give them, the more involved they can become with workable solutions to issues that arise.”

By taking basic site representation training, these CSLEA members are becoming more involved with their union and looking to help make their workplaces and opportunities the best they can be.

“We cover workplace scenarios, the protections of the contract, how to present your case to management, and always stress that they communicate with us right from the ground level,” said Perez.  “Site representatives are our eyes and ears, our boots on the ground, and they are great about keeping in constant contact with us.”

Those who took basic site representation on August 12, 2020 include two CHP public safety dispatchers, a CHP motor carrier specialist and a State Hospital emergency services coordinator.
