President Update 4/20/17

E-mail Print PDF

President Angermaier, has posted the following.

Lifeguards,
After long and deliberate negotiations, the Executive Board and I are pleased to announce Ken Bohman will be filling the position of Regional Captain.
This position was selected through months of negotiations and discussions between the JBLC and local management. Work experience (seniority), and title were used to select potential candidates, interviews were held. Management and Labor worked together to create and fill a position that would be mutually beneficial to both sides, something that would not be possible to accomplish if we were not strong together as a Union. Management could have easily hired someone from outside or even internally who possessed appropriate qualifications. It could have been a repeat of what was once the WSO.

As your Union president, I fought to have one of our own in this position. Someone who not only was qualified, but most importantly, experienced. Ken has been leading officer training, overseeing the draft, and has sixteen years of Captain experience leading young lifeguards at one of the largest facilities. Captain Bohman will continue to pass the JBLC rehire qualifications and remain a part of our bargaining unit. This means that we will have increased our total compliment of guards, and more importantly, created a new Captain position.

Discipline will continue to be handled by the park managers, as it has been for several years, the only difference is our staffing, scheduling, and equipment needs and concerns will be more of a priority. I ask the JBLC membership to join the Executive Board and myself to allow and encourage Capt. Bohman to do the best for all of us. To take a step forward, and not backward, so we can continue to work the greatest job in the world!!

...Hope everyone is getting ready for another great season!!

There will be five (5) opportunities for guards to complete their re-hire qualification swim/run for 2017. The location is at Suffolk Community College, Brentwood (Grant) campus.

May 6 @10am
May 13 @ 1pm
May 18 @ 4pm
May 23 @ 3pm
May 31 @ 3pm,

2017 Lifeguard Draft, Saturday June 3rd @ 6pm, WEII Concession

New Hire Test, June 11 @ 7am, SCCC Brentwood

CPR dates and on-line sign up information will be included in your rehire packet. Classes fill up fast, so sign up early. For most guards, it is the 8 hour course with first aid and oxygen administration, however 4 hour courses will be available if you are off year.

In Solidarity,
Derek Angermaier
President
JBLC
