LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder has appointed Marie Waalkes as Michigan’s director of the Office of the State Employer.

Snyder announced the appointment Wednesday. The Lansing woman will replace Jan Winters, who was selected by the Civil Service Commission as the state’s new personnel director in March.

The State Employer office oversees the state’s employee relations, represents the governor in collective bargaining negotiations and recommends a plan for rates of compensation and other conditions of employment for non-represented employees to the Civil Service Commission.

Snyder said Waalkes is “a principled leader who will ensure an inclusive and constructive work environment that benefits our hardworking employees, Michiganders and taxpayers.”

Her appointment will be effective on April 26.
