Winter 2016 Standing Committee Updates

Membership Services and Public Relations Committee

At the last UPEA Membership Services and Public Relations Committee meeting, Pam Sorensen drew the first quarter (July to September 2016) winner for UPEA’s Recruiter Giveaway program.  The winner was Tara Brunatti from District 10, Salt Lake Valley Local Government District, who will receive a $50 check.  During the quarter there were 53 recruiters and 189 new members.

The committee will draw the second quarter (October to December 2016) winner on Thursday, Jan. 12 at 6 p.m. at the UPEA office.  If you would like to be in the drawing, ask your co-workers to join UPEA online at https://upea.net/join-today/ and list you as the recruiter!  In addition, both of you will receive the $20 recruiter/$20 new member incentive.

If you are interested in attending the next Membership Services and Public Relations Committee meeting, contact Christy Cushing at (801) 264-8732 ext. 218 or christy@upea.net.

Grievance Committee

Last month the Grievance Committee met and discussed the Salt Lake County grievance and appeal process.  Unlike the state where the fourth level of review is the Career Service Review Office, Salt Lake County’s fourth level of review is the Career Service Council.  The individuals who serve on the Career Service Council cannot be public employees or employed by Salt Lake County.

The Grievance Committee also reviewed a previous Salt Lake County suspension case UPEA handled last winter.

The Committee’s next meeting will be on Thursday, Jan. 26,  at 6 p.m. at the UPEA office.  The committee tentatively plans to discuss a previous state of Utah termination case where the association prevailed and the termination was overturned.  If you are interested in attending the next committee meeting, contact Christy Cushing at (801) 264-8732 ext. 218 or christy@upea.net.  If you have questions related to the grievance process, contact your UPEA staff representative.
