On the heels of last week’s DCF frontline workers meeting with lawmakers in Burlington to discuss safety, DCF workers in Williston held a similar meeting this week with their area lawmakers, including Rep. Ann Pugh (D-S. Burlington), who chairs the House Human Services Committee. The meeting was very well attended and the discussion was productive.

This was the first opportunity for frontline workers to discuss last week’s serious threat against DCF in Williston. Workers told legislators that news reports of offices being on lockdown were incorrect, as no lockdown protocol currently exists within DCF to direct employees.
