The election to fill the union representative staff position on the university’s Police Department Oversight Committee will take place June 12-16.

Nominations are being accepted for the seat representing bargained-for staff members from the following unions: AFSCME, IUOE, HOA, MNA and Skilled Trades. The nomination deadline is Friday.

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 representative), who are nominated and elected by their peers for two-year terms.

The Police Department Oversight Committee considers grievances against any police officer or the U-M Police Department. Its findings and recommendations are reported to the executive director of the Division of Public Safety and Security.

University Human Resources is conducting this election. Members of AFSCME, HOA, IUOE, MNA and Skilled Trades may nominate themselves or another union member to serve on the committee for the term that runs from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2019.  

Nominations may be submitted online or to University Human Resources, 2005 Wolverine Tower, 3003 S. State St., Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109-1281, attention: Julie Doman, or by emailing
