(Ramsey County, Minnesota) In the midst of efforts to reform the troubled child protection system, a local union is suing Ramsey County in an effort to raise awareness of the county’ s “broken child-protection system.”

The lawsuit emanates from complaints that management has interfered with employee’s rights, that workers are so overburdened with caseloads that they fear an at-risk child will get lost in the system, and say they face retaliation when raising concerns.

Jennifer Munt, public affairs director for AFSCME Minnesota Council 5 says the union is fighting for whistle blower protection for the CPS workers,”We are seeking a temporary injunction against the county because supervisors have threatened and disciplined social workers who question the county’s child protection system.

A hearing is scheduled to take place on the current lawsuit on April 25.
