Sierra College employees look to join Teamsters

A group of administrators and supervisors in the Sierra Joint Community College District, apparently upset over the forced retirement of college President Kevin Ramirez, are seeking to join the Teamsters Union.

Teamsters Local 228 in Sacramento said it has filed a petition with the state Public Employee Relations Board to be recognized as the bargaining agent for administrative and supervisory personnel in the district.

“Recent changes and actions by some of the board of trustees are hostile to the management of the college,” the union said in a press release. “Therefore, it is very clear that the time has come to seek strong and professional representation.”
