Labor Relations Specialist

The Classified and Faculty & Academic Professional Federations have hired Vincent Blanco as our new Labor Relations Specialist! Vincent was one of several very well qualified applicants, and his official start date will be October 9th. As we all did, he'll need some time to settle in and learn the PCC systems, but he's well equipped to hit the ground running.

Here's a little bit about him:

Vincent Blanco, Jr. graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science to gain an understanding of politics and governments and a Bachelor's degree in Sociology to comprehend the development, structure, and functioning of human social relationships.

After graduating from SDSU, Vincent attended Loyola University of Chicago School of Law where he successfully earned his Juris Doctorate Law Degree.  There he focused and sharpened his skills in Labor Law, Business Law and Negotiations.

Vincent has worked in the capacity of a Labor Representative for the Teamsters Union in Chicago where he represented the private soft drink industry workers of Pepsi Americas and Coca Cola Refreshments and most recently worked as the Labor Representative for AFSCME San Diego where he represented the 
city workers of San Diego.

As a Labor Representative, Vincent acquired experience in private and public-sector unionism, collective bargaining, agency shop, dispute resolution, political affairs, grievances, internal organizing, conducting administrative hearings and arbitration.

Vincent is a great addition to our team, and you can meet him at the "Federation Lunch Meetings" detailed below.
