SACRAMENTO - In an effort to become more informed about their union and to participate with their supervisors to create solutions to workplace problems, three State Parks Peace Officers and a Communications Operator volunteered to take a California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) site representation class via video conference.
CSLEA Senior Counsel Andrea Perez and Supervising Counsel Dave De La Riva hosted the class which teaches members about the union, its role, procedures, grievances, paths to resolutions, the Bargaining Unit 7 contract and the work of site representatives.
“One of our site representatives actually participated as a refresher course and remarked how he learns something new each time he sits in,” said Perez. “This group had some great questions and we covered much ground.”
In attendance were Rangers Lee Hawkins, Hannah Rizzo and Justin Edwards and Communications Operator Phillip Davis.
CSLEA site representation classes are held throughout the year based on interest or request.
“I commend those who want to have a more active role in our union and what goes on in their workplace and during their workday,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. “Thank you for lending your helping hands and minds and investing time to be part of the solution!”
