Sergeants Representative
 Dave Viddivo- Sergeant's Representative
As your Sergeant Representative, there are many situations that arise on a day-to-day basis for which I can be utilized. When you are notified of an investigation or interrogation, you may request that I be present to assist you. I am also available to file evaluation appeals (agency level), 4.5 exit interviews, statewide or local labor management issues and agendas, grievance assistance including disciplinary or any other departmental issues that may arise.

Statewide Labor Management Agenda

1. 4.5 termination/review policy; set up a committee to review as oppose to Director of Personnel having sole discretion.
2. Sergeants on comp/sick cannot transfer/promoted. Make available to all members.
3. Place directions on employee evaluation form to appeal decision.
4. Waiving time served for probationary period. Temp probation counting towards permanent retention.
5. Inclusion of sergeant's in Backfilling Agreement
6. MOU that any sergeant that is in temp status will be made permanent upon the expiration of the promotional exam in which he was promoted.

Please Note: Transfer lists are provided by DOCCS shortly after each re-ranking by seniority. I have requested on several occasions to get an updated list from DOCCS, at least every four weeks, so that transfers can be tracked more easily. My requests have been denied. The lists are not updated until after the next re-ranking. For current transfer list information contact your local personnel office or DOCCS Security Personnel at 518-457-8131.
