SACRAMENTO – On November 15, 2021, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) Senior Counsel Andrea Perez conducted a basic site representation class for two CSLEA members who are dispatchers at the California Highway Patrol and a member who is an emergency services coordinator at the California Office of Emergency Services.
“I applaud our three members who took our basic site rep course today and those who have taken it prior to this, as it allows them to learn more about our union, the union’s function and how they can become more involved in what we do to assist our members,” said Perez. “This class puts our members on the path to becoming a site representative in their work place, allowing them to communicate with supervisors on a different level without fear of insubordination.”
Site representation classes include information on resolving conflict, solutions, communication, grievances, as well as articles in the Bargaining Unit 7 contract. Basic site representation classes are then followed by advance site representation classes.
“Thank you to our members who are currently serving as site representatives,” said Perez. “Your contributions to CSLEA and your colleagues is invaluable.”
