Report 2017-119: California State University: It Has Not Provided Adequate Oversight of the Safety of Employees and Students Who Work With Hazardous Materials (Release Date: April 2018)

Recommendation #14 To: Sonoma State University

To ensure that it receives feedback from employee representatives on conditions associated with their work environments and that it develops appropriate interventions, Sonoma should ensure that its joint committee meets and fulfills its responsibilities in accordance with the bargaining agreement. If such committee does not exist, it should work with the union to form it by September 2018.

60-Day Agency Response

To augment our Safety Committee we formed the SETC/Teamster Safety Committee, a joint committee consisting of equal parts of union and management representatives. The first meeting was held 04/30/2018 and a subsequent meeting held 05/31/2018.
