The Health and Safety Committee of the LEA is composed of more than 20 staff members from across the district. This committee was formed in the summer of 2020. We recruited members from every building, representing a variety of roles, so that we could adequately represent the health and safety needs and concerns of a large portion of our staff. During the summer, we gathered information from each building regarding health and safety concerns related to the pandemic. This information was organized and communicated to the governing body of the LEA and used in the bargaining process.
A future goal is to create a Joint Labor/Management Health and Safety Committee so that the lines of communication around these topics remain open and transparent. The committee meets biweekly on Thursdays from 4:00-5:00 pm.
