My name is Ruth Tyson. I am a Supervising Deputy Probation Officer with over 19 years of County service. As the 2nd Vice President of Local 702 and as a long-standing active union member, I have most recently worked to increase the pay and benefits of Probation Supervisors. My role and experience in the union includes the following:
I have the experience and track record of working on behalf of and and in the interest of Probation Supervisors. With my experience, I am well qualified to represent County employees on the Local 702 and I am steadfastly committed to protecting our MOU. I have a BS in Healthcare Management and Master of Science in Counseling. I am a License Marriage Family Therapist (LMFT). I have always supported the cause of my peers. Most recently, I along with the Local 702 Board assisted with securing the 2019 contract, in which we were able to secure a 10.75% overall raise, 2% educational bonus for Supervising Detention Service Officers, and a host of other contractual benefits. I look forward to continuing to represent and support our members in the future.
