AFSCME Reaches Agreement With State On Prison Jobs

September 14th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Maryland Council 3 announced today an agreement with the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services (DPSCS) regarding the department’s restructuring of the Human Resources Division. The new plan no longer involves any job losses. Instead, employees who may have been separated will now be relocated to vacant positions within DPSCS.

“AFSCME members are pleased to reach a mutual understanding with Secretary Stephen T. Moyer which respects the service of and protects the jobs of these hard-working employees, while still allowing the department to reorganize human resources functions,” said AFSCME Maryland Council 3, President Patrick Moran.

The original plan would have abolished 63 positions and would have resulted in layoffs. The department will establish human  resources “hubs” in Baltimore, Cumberland, Hagerstown, Jessup and Westover. The new plan allows workers to remain in state service within the DPSCS.
