Union staff nominations sought for police oversight committee

May 20, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Our Employees

The election to fill the union representative staff position on the university’s Police Department Oversight Committee will take place from June 10 until 14. Nominations are being accepted for the seat representing bargained-for staff members from the following unions: AFSCME, IUOE, HOA, MNA and Skilled Trades.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, May 24.

The Police Department Oversight Committee considers grievances against any police officer or the U-M Police Department. It reports its findings and recommendations to the executive director of the Division of Public Safety and Security.

The six-member committee is comprised of two student members, two faculty members (one Senate faculty and one non-Senate faculty), and two staff members (one union and one non-union representative), who are nominated and elected by their peers for two-year terms.

University Human Resources is conducting this election. Members of the AFSCME, HOA, IUOE, MNA and Skilled Trades unions may nominate themselves or another union member to serve on the committee for the term July 1, 2019-June 30, 2021.
