North Central Region Team
North Central Regional Vice President
North Central Regional Fair Practices Coordinator
Sandy Parr, is currently, the Regional Fair Practices Coordinator for the North Central Region. She started her career with the Federal Bureau of Prison at FMC Rochester, MN in 1999 as a Correctional Nurse. Sandy, coming from a union strong family, immediately joined the Local Union and has been a strong union advocate locally and nationally from day one.
After joining, Sandy rose to the position of Treasure for Local 3947 at FMC Rochester in 2000. She excelled and progressed thru the ranks of the Local and regionally as the Regional Fair Practices Coordinator. In September 2013 Sandy was elected to the National Vice President for Women and Fair Practices Council of prison locals and held this position until September 2017.
Sandy has attended countless training sessions sponsored by the Union and the Agency. This has made her into a well-versed and knowledgeable advocate in EEO and Arbitration. Mentored by Dwayne Person, Regional Vice President, who had more than 25 years fighting cases in all administrative forms and negotiating, Sandy has become proficient at EEO, arbitration and negotiations from beginning to end.
Sandy has spent a great portion of her career and her livelihood sacrificing on behalf of the membership. She suffered firsthand the horrific act of discrimination and the effects discrimination has on oneself, family and the community. Since that time she has fought firsthand on behalf of employees against the injustice which continues to persist in the Federal Bureau of Prison. Because of this she has learned the tools of her trade to hold Agency management officials accountable locally and nationally.
During her terms as the National Vice President for Women and Fair Practices Sandy accomplished more default judgements than any other CPL officer in the council before her fighting for equality in the work place. Sandy has been teaching the EEO process in its entirety, including how to deal with the BOP unethical antics in her EEO Summit she had each year since 2013. She successfully trained more advocates to fight discrimination and won many EEO cases for the members. Sandy successfully received multiple sanctions from Administrative Judges against the agency for their continuous violations within the EEO process to prevail for our members. The Agency actions were tolerated for years until Sandy received several sanctions, default judgments and had agency attorneys removed from cases by the Administrative Judges for their actions, who also reported these attorneys to DOJ for investigation/discipline for their unethical behaviors.
Using all the tools available to the union and its members, Sandy has also successfully secured “Stays” for staff facing retaliatory termination from the office of special counsel, flipping the script back onto the BOP and investigating them for misconduct, while keeping the members employment.
Sandy continues to work hard to ensure not only the agency has diversity within but also the union leadership. She vowed to never be silenced and always fight for a safe working place for all, NOBODY should have to go to work and face Harassment or Discrimination, NOBODY!!
