Brothers and Sister of AFSCME Local 2432,
In response to AFSCME Local 2432’s letter of March 31, 2020
voicing members’ concerns regarding protections from exposure to COVID
at the workplace, the City provided its response, which you will find below.
CM Response to AFSCME – April 20_ 2020
Please know that we had multiple discussions with the City to address the allegations that implied employee theft of safety supplies. It appears that those statements were simply a result of a misunderstanding and a series of miscommunications. Rather than dwell on that unfortunate comment, we will chalk that up to the chaos and confusion that everyone finds themselves in these days, and move forward together with the City.
Local 2432 would like to take this moment to commend all of its hard-working members for continuing to provide essential services to the public during these uncertain times, thereby keeping the City of Hollywood functioning for our first responders and for the community as a whole.
As your AFSCME Executive Board, we urge each and every one of you to diligently adhere to the City-mandated protective measures in order to protect yourselves and others, using all available protective equipment, and continuing to follow all safety guidelines. If you have not already been provided protective equipment, please report this to your managers and directors. If it is not promptly addressed and resolved, then contact HR and Local 2432. We want you to know that the City is considering the implementation of alternating shifts, as an additional safety precaution for our membership, and to ensure the ongoing provision of our essential services.
Vacant Trustee and Treasurer Positions
The election of Trustee John Berak to the Vice-President position on the Executive Board created a vacancy in the Trustee position. Also, Treasurer Rafael Quintero’s retirement created a vacancy in the Treasurer position. Per the Union Constitution, the Union Executive Board nominates and elects members to fill vacancies for these positions during unexpired terms.
At the January 7th E-Board meeting, Sister Barbara Armand was nominated and elected to fill the vacant Treasurer position. Also, the members below were nominated to fill the vacant Trustee position:
- Ameer Khan
- Travis Morancie
- David Blum
The Executive Board elected Travis Morancie to fill the vacant Trustee position. Congrats to Barbara and Travis and thanks to all who were considered.
