ABOUT LOCAL 333
|A Brief Introduction to Local 333 |
Local 333 is composed of about 320 inspectors, investigators, consumer specialists and consultants from nine different agencies. Our members are scattered around the State in home or agency offices. Our members are assigned to two different bargaining units, Security and Public Safety and Technical Bargaining Units. Over 300 members are in the SPS Unit and the others are in the Technical Unit. The Bargaining Units are applicable to contract negotiations and representation on the Executive Board of the Wisconsin State Employees Union also known as Council 24. You may wonder what the Local does for you. Local 333 represents you to management at Labor-Management meetings, disciplinary proceedings and grievance hearings. We also participate in the bargaining for wages and hours.
Inside the Union Local 333 sends delegates to the State and International Conventions and Bargaining Unit conferences. Conventions and the Bargaining Unit Conferences do some of the business of Wisconsin State Employees Union. The Local elects delegates to these bodies proportionally to its size. We are allowed 4 delegates to the SPS Bargaining Unit Conference, 1 delegate to the Technical Bargaining Unit Conference, and 4 delegates to the annual Convention. We are allowed 4 delegates to the biennial AFSCME International Convention.
Local 333 has an Executive Board of 4 table officers President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary and 16 Executive Board Members elected by the members. Nominations for offices are taken during the fall meeting in odd-numbered years. Table officers are elected for two-year terms. Three trustees are elected to oversee the financial record keeping of the Local. One trustee is elected each year to a three-year term.
Elections are held in April of even-numbered years. Only the names of those in contested races appear on the ballot as specified by the International Union. Local 333 has two regular meetings each year. One in spring and one in fall. Meetings are always on a Saturday. If you have signed a “green card” you are a member of Local 333. Over 300 of your fellow workers have joined Local 333. If you haven’t signed the green card then you are a Fair Share payer. Both members and Fair Share payers pay the same amount each month in dues or fair share payments. Both are entitled to full representation by the Union. However, only are members may participate in Local activities such as meetings, contract ratification votes and elections. If you want a word in what the Local and Council 24 does you have to join the Local by signing the green card.

REPRESENTED EMPLOYEES RIGHTS
|Every two years, the Wisconsin State Employees Union renegotiates a contract with the state. The agreement states what wages, benefits, rights, and responsibilities we have, and what rights and responsibilities management has. Both the union and the state are obliged to obey this agreement. If your supervisor violates our contract, you can file a grievance to force them to correct the problem. One of our rights under the contract is the right to file a grievance on work time and to have a steward present during any disciplinary or investigatory meeting with management if you believe disciplinary action may result from the meeting.|
HOW TO CONTACT A STEWARD?
|Tell your supervisor that you want to meet with your steward "about a possible grievance." Stewards are trained in the contract, and will be able to give your problem the attention it needs. Your supervisor doesn’t have the right to ask you why, and must set up a private meeting in a timely manner on work time (In paid status). Ideally, and whenever possible, these meetings should be scheduled for the next day after the request is made when both employees are scheduled to work. However, it is understood that this is not always possible due to real operational needs. If your supervisor tells you to set up the meeting yourself, says no steward is available, call the President, Dave Schultz at 920-294-6116 and we will trouble-shoot the problem. Also contact us with address changes, membership problems, and general questions or if you're not sure where to go for help. |
