Under the new public records law, each town must appoint a “Records Access Officer” to coordinate and manage the municipalities’ response to public records requests. These additional duties may impact some Local 888 members who are assigned additional responsibilities.

The new requirements went into effect the first of the year and must be fully implemented by July 2017.
As a member, have you encountered new responsibilities as a result of the law? As a leader, are you bargaining over changes to job descriptions related to it? Have you won members more money for the extra responsibilities?
