Membership Services and Public Relations Committee
The Utah Public Employees’ Association (UPEA) Membership Services and Public Relations Committee will meet Oct. 27 to randomly draw the winner for the first quarter’s Recruiter Giveaway Program. UPEA members who recruited one or more new members between June and September 2016 will be entered in the drawing. Members will receive one entry for each new member recruited.
The committee will randomly draw the second-quarter recruiter in January 2017. If you would like to participate in the program, encourage your co-workers to join UPEA online at https://upea.net/join-today/ and to list you as the recruiter. Both of you also will be eligible for the $20 recruiter and $20 new member incentive.

The Grievance Committee met in August to discuss how members can grieve an annual or quarterly performance evaluation. For there to be grounds to file a grievance, some type of adverse employment action or harm has to occur. Without harm, there is no grievance. An example of harm related to your performance evaluation would be receiving a failed or unsuccessful performance rating.
If you feel an aspect or aspects of your performance evaluation criteria is not related to your job requirements, you can provide comments within the Utah Performance Management (UPM) system. However, you will not be able to grieve the performance criteria until after you have failed that particular section of your job expectations, or your overall performance evaluation.
The Grievance Committee’s next meeting will be on Oct. 2020 at 6 p.m. at the UPEA office. The committee plans to discuss the Salt Lake County grievance procedure. If you’re interested in attending, please contact Christy Cushing at (801) 264-8732 ext. 218 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions related to the grievance process, please contact your UPEA staff representative.
