Nominees are being sought for the non-union staff representative position on the U-M Police Department Oversight Committee.
The committee considers grievances against any police officer or the police department. Its findings and recommendations are reported to the executive director of the Division of Public Safety and Security.
The six-member committee consists of two student members, two faculty members (one Senate faculty and one non-Senate faculty), and two staff members (one union and one non-union), who are nominated and elected by their peers for two-year terms.
One staff member of the committee is elected in odd-numbered years, by staff members represented by a union; and one is elected in even-numbered years, by staff members not represented by a union.
This year, the election will be scheduled for the two-year term for the non-union staff member that begins July 1.
Nominations can be made online through May 6 at tinyurl.com/gmt9mp2.
Staff members not represented by unions may nominate themselves or agree to be nominated. Nominees will be contacted by Staff Human Resources for their consent to run in the June election.
The election to appoint the new staff representative will take place June 13-24. Appointment of the newly elected non-union staff member to the committee takes place July 1.
