Alabama groups issue request for proposals from organizations to handle worker discrimination, harassment complaints
Nonprofits, law school clinics, and legal services in Alabama, southern Tennessee, or central-to-western Georgia are encouraged to apply by November 11
BIRMINGHAM, September 29, 2022 — Jobs to Move America (JMA) and Greater Birmingham Ministries (GBM) released a request for proposals (RFP) today from nonprofits, law school clinics, legal service organizations, and other applicable organizations to provide services to New Flyer workers in Anniston, Ala. who wish to file confidential internal complaints alleging discrimination, sexual harassment, and/or racism in the workplace. Proposals are due on November 11.
In May, JMA and GBM signed a community benefits agreement with New Flyer, the largest bus manufacturer in North America and leader in electric buses, to create a robust jobs program for low-income and historically disadvantaged workers in Anniston and in Ontario, Calif. One component of the agreement is to designate a community organization to assist employees in making and resolving complaints about perceived harassment or discrimination.
The selected organization will serve as an independent advocate for employees and help establish an innovative system for addressing claims of discrimination and harassment that supplements New Flyer’s existing employee complaint and hotline system. New Flyer’s Anniston facility employs around 700 employees.
Details on the scope of work, pricing, qualifications, evaluation, and more can be found in the RFP on Jobs to Move America’s website. Questions about the RFP can be directed to JMA’s Strategic Campaign Manager Will Tucker at email@example.com.
