Councilwoman Jessica Green (D-1) is encouraging any job seeker out there to take advantage of the AFSCME Job Fair set for this Wednesday, February 28th.
“While we are always glad to help any group publicize employment opportunities, we shouldn’t forget there are openings in right here in Metro Government that people may not be aware of,” says Green. “Many times the difference between finding a job and getting a job is knowing what is available.”
The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees will hold their Job Fair at Jefferson Square Park right across from Metro Hall between the hours of 11:00am and 1:00pm.
“AFSCME positions have been understaffed for over 2 years mainly in Metro Corrections and Youth Detention Services Departments. AFSCME has worked diligently with Metro to get these positions filled. However we’ve been met with resistance to the point we’ve filled grievance after grievance on short staffing and unsafe working,” says Saulette Davis of AFSCME. “We would like the Community to join us and stand with us in Jefferson Square Park across from the Mayor’s office to fill out applications where we will have computers set up. Under staffing means the Public is underserved!”
It is an opportunity to learn what open positions there are in Metro Government at all departments and agencies.
“So if you are interested, come check it out,” says the Councilwoman.
