Elected Union Officers Envision Employee Empowerment

By Javier Chagoya

Newly-elected officers for the National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE) Local 1690 gather around a raised arm symbolizing solidarity, Nov. 21. Elections for the next slate of officers were held late last month, with Administrative Specialist Sara Stolt winning the office of President.

"My first priority as Local 1690 President is to continue to build our internal structure, and by that I mean getting our membership more involved to help the bargaining unit be strong and vocal when need be," explained Stolt. "We'll achieve this by increasing our visibility and defining the roles and responsibilities of the union, and encourage proactive partnership with the agency."

Stolt and Vice-President Alex Savattone, a program analyst in the Space Systems Academic Group, say they want to ensure that the frontline employee perspective is taken into account.

"We believe we're starting off on a very good footing to continue the 1690 legacy of building and maintaining relationships among NPS' employees. Their participation is also key to a successful bargaining unit," said Savattone.

Joining Stolt, pictured left, and Savattone, right, in new union roles are, from second from left, Auditor Charlotte Miller, Trustee Tyller Williamson, and Recording Secretary Neecha Gwin. Not pictured are Secretary Treasurer Bardomina Lopez, Conductor Sentinal Malcolm Mejia, Trustees Vinny Carr and Patty Jackson, and Auditors Linda Bittner and Javier Chagoya.
