Janet Armijo worked at the City of Santa Fe NM in a number of jobs including Administrative Assistant in the Personnel office. Armijo left that job to work as a Compliance Specialist and then Scalemaster at the newly created (1995) SFSWMA (Santa Fe Solid Waste Management Agency) which oversees the Caja del Rio Landfill, Santa Fe County Transfer Stations, and the Buckman Road Recycling & Transfer Station (BuRRT). Within a short time of starting her new job, Armijo joined with other supporters to advocate for an election to unionize the SFSWFA employees. With the success of the vote, the decision was made to join the City Of Santa Fe AFSCME Local 3999. Armijo offers strong belief in the power of the Union to improve the working conditions and benefits in her workplace.
