Who do you call first?

Local 695 contacts and trained stewards are spread across the about ten thousand square mile area of MnDOT District 1A in Northeastern Minnesota. At times only one authorized staff person from Council 5 is available for Field Representative covering all of Northern Minnesota.

Members are advised to find, meet and personally know face-to-face who currently serves as their genuine, Local-approved and AFSCME-trained steward as well as nearest area contacts.  Volunteer contact persons and current elected officials are listed on Local 695’s shingle posted on worksite Union bulletin boards. Voice-call or SMS (texting) contact info (for daytime working hours) is on record (accessed via member account login) at https://members.afscmemn.org/

Local E-Board officers have business mailboxes within 695’s paid private domain:

By the most recently revised official IT policy directives, all MnDOT employees must annually take mandatory training, then acknowledge by hardcopy, hand signature, or electronically by Docusign or eSign, that after their IT policy training they've understood there is zero expectation any employee has any personal privacy with any kind of electronic communication using any State of Minnesota network or device. Once an employee uses any personal device of their own for any State of MN business, photo, file or app, the employee surrenders any expectation of privacy with that personal device, and if discovery ensues pursuant to investigating for discipline or prosecuting a court case, all information and data on all places that device has been within that legally expropriate device's network area become forfeit under this policy.
