BIIA Area Reports

Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals

6/2018

We have no Demands to Bargain at this time.  BIIA had informed us of a possible move in the near future of the Tacoma Office.  They have informed us the space DES found did not meet the needs for BIIA and the search for a new site continues.  A DTB will be filed when the new location has been sited and if there are work change issues. One member of the UMCC team has requested we set the next meeting.  We are waiting for agenda items to schedule.  BIIA forwarded June 28th an update of Safety Related Activities noting safety enhancements to the Olympia reception stations including more secure access and bullet-resistant glass; establishment of Safe Rooms in all BIIA offices; adding notes to files about safety concerns; Threats and Assaults Policy has been updated; and the annual review of PDP will include a refresh on safety/security procedures.
