Hollywood AFSCME Local 2432 has been working with the City to address concerns and guide its members regarding safety in the workplace due to COVID-19. Some of these concerns have been related to telecommuting to accommodate greater physical distancing in the workplace.
On July 7, 2020, Local 2432 representatives had a phone meeting with the City Manager to discuss our concerns regarding the status of the existing protocol for telecommuting and any possible updates to it due to the apparent increase in the spread of the COVID-19 in the South Florida area.
Per the meeting discussion, requests for telecommuting are still being accepted. AFSCME agreed to help get the word out to its members that employees who would like to telecommute, whether they telecommuted or were previously denied, may re-apply in writing for the City Manager’s approval. The City Manager advised that granting the requests will be made on a case-by-case basis.
