SPB focus group: LEAP program, bilingual and civil rights
3:09 PM - March 25, 2010


As part of an invitation extended by the State Personnel Board (SPB), Brenda Modkins, Alternate Vice-Chair of Bargaining Unit 1, attended the focus group on behalf of Local 1000. Only one other state union attended the meeting.
The meeting was productive regarding how to make the systems of SPB pertaining to these issues more user-friendly and more beneficial to those using it. We discussed how to not prejudice people interviewing from the LEAP list. Hopefully, SPB will use the information received. It was great that Local 1000 was invited to be a participant with the agencies in these matters.
