Union opposes new HR rules proposed by the city of Austin, TX
Washington, D.C.-based trade union American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees is wary of the language in proposed changes to a city’s policy regarding discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and employee conduct.
The rules that the trade union is in contention of are the ones that would affect an employee while the said employee is off duty as long as the “conduct is related to or relevant to an employee’s job”.
In a letter asking the Austin City Council to do away with such a provision, AFSCME business manager Carol Guthrie said, “We oppose any oversight of the private lives of employees in situations that have no impact on an employee’s ability to perform their job.”
