SUP. MOLINA, CHAIR: ALL RIGHT. WE HAVE A GROUP OF SPEAKERS THAT WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS THIS. COULD WE HAVE ANDREA GORDON JOIN US, WENDY RAMALLO, ESTHER LOFTON AND RANDY BRISSETTE. MISS GORDON, DO YOU WANT TO BEGIN?

ANDREA GORDON: THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR. MY NAME IS ANDREA GORDON AND I'M PRESIDENT OF THE PROFESSIONAL MANAGERS ASSOCIATION. THAT IS THE UNION LOCAL THAT REPRESENTS THE PROBATION DIRECTORS IN THE PROBATION DEPARTMENT. I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT WE APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT FINALLY SOME OF THESE ISSUES THAT WE'VE BEEN BRINGING TO THE ATTENTION OF THE DEPARTMENT AND OTHERS FOR YEARS ARE FINALLY BEING ADDRESSED. SOME OF THESE CONCERNS AND THESE ISSUES ARE WHAT PROMPTED THE LINE LEVEL MANAGERS IN THE DEPARTMENT TO FORM A BARGAINING UNIT. WE'VE IDENTIFIED THE CONCERNS, THE ISSUES, THE PROBLEMS AND HAVE BEEN BRINGING THEM FORWARD AND SAW NOTHING HAPPENED FOR YEARS. IT WAS VERY FRUSTRATING FOR THE MANY, MANY PEOPLE IN THIS DEPARTMENT WHO WORKED SO VERY HARD TO ALWAYS TRY TO DO THE RIGHT THING. WE APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT THE LEADERSHIP IN OUR DEPARTMENT IS NOW WILLING TO WORK JOINTLY WITH US AS I'M TOLD IN A JOINT MANAGEMENT LABOR COMMITTEE TO CONTINUE TO ADDRESS THE WORK THAT WE'VE ALREADY STARTED, AND I'M HOPING THAT THE COUNTY AND THE SUPERVISORS HERE WILL CONTINUE THAT PROCESS AS WELL. THANK YOU.
