Members of the Maryland Professional Employees Council (MPEC) met with Scott Jensen, Deputy Secretary of the Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (DLLR), January 16th for the first of several sessions intended to establish a Labor Management Committee (LMC) in the department.

The LMC is intended to resolve workplace conflicts between employees and management through a cooperative process. As a result of a provision included in the contract negotiated by MPEC, LMCs may be initiated by employees in any state agency.

MPEC representative George Myers and DLLR union stewards Wanda Butler and Roop Vijayan met with Deputy Secretary Jensen. Reportedly, the meeting was conducted in an atmosphere of mutual cooperation, and DLLR management expressed support of the Labor Management Committee concept.
