When you need support for an issue, you have advocates at many levels of the Association. Here is an outline of the available resources and who you should contact first:
Unless you have a legal issue, potential contract violation, or evaluation problem, your first step should always be to talk with your worksite representative. Most of the time, they will have the answer or be able to access the right information.
Every worksite is assigned a DEA Executive Board member to liaison with your AR and you as a member. Your AR will know who this person is.
Your elected DEA president can be reached at the DEA office at (801) 451-2277 on most afternoons. Denise teaches at Valley View Elementary in the morning and will be available at 12:30 PM each day. You may also email her directly.
Cindy is the advocacy expert. Anything dealing with legal issues, potential contract violations, or evaluation problems should come to her. You may call or email anytime you need immediate answers or assistance, regardless of how serious your concern is. The DEA office number is (801) 451-2277, or you can email Cindy directly.
We always hope you won’t need advocate assistance, but when you do, the DEA is here to help. Check out the Legal Protections Act to learn more.
