UNION CONTRACTS AND POLICIES
Employee and Labor Relations
The City of Lacey has contracts with three labor unions. General office, maintenance, and professional staff are represented by the Association of Federal, State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) local 618. Police Sergeants and Lieutenants are covered under a contract with the Lacey Police Management Association, and Police Officers are members of the Lacey Police Officers’ Guild. The Director of Human Resources facilitates the collective bargaining process, which includes contract negotiation, implementation, grievance resolution, and ongoing labor-management relations.
The Human Resources Department takes a lead role in developing and disseminating city-wide policies relating to employment, supervision, training, benefits, leaves, holidays, and safety. The department also advises and provides assistance to other departments with their internal development of Standard Operating Procedures.
