Tourism Oversight Board Announces New ‘Whistleblower’ Policy

Tourism Oversight Board Announces New 'Whistleblower' Policy cftod-mtg-jun21

The Central Florida Tourism Oversight District conducted its Board of Supervisors meeting on Wednesday and announced a new “whistleblower” policy. Board Chairman Martin Garcia explained that the intention of this new policy is to encourage transparency and openness as, apparently, some employees didn’t feel that their concerns were necessarily heard under the prior Disney-aligned leadership. Board members stated this new policy goes into effect for nonunion members immediately and for unionized employees, August 1, 2023, at the earliest, and will supplement existing protections in state and federal law.

We want to adopt a policy that says we don’t have deaf ears, nothing will fall on deaf ears. So if you have an issue, here is a new policy. Here is a new culture.

An announcement of a closed-door session on Friday to discuss union negotiations regarding firefighters’ contracts was also made. You can read more about the contract delay we reported on earlier this week here.
