COT Update

Preserving our Bargaining Unit Work!

      UPE filed an Unfair Labor Practice charge on the Court for allowing a Court Room Clerk manager to perform Courtroom Clerk duties at Juvenile Court.

Why is It important to preserve our bargaining unit work?

      UPE firmly believes in the principle of protecting one’s own bargaining unit work.  If others outside of the union are allowed to perform our designated bargaining unit work, then it will likely continue thus slowly eroding the preservation of our jobs. To clarify, the Court will begin having management, supervisors, temps and non-UPE workers perform the duties; hence, replacing you-- the union worker.  As a result, UPE has challenged the Court on this matter.

 008 Meet & Confer Update

APS On-line Reporting

  On November 25, 2019, UPE met with the County to discuss the implementation of the Adult Protective Services (APS) On-Line Reporting Form. Currently, reports of neglect or abuse are made via the telephone hotline. The new on-line reporting form aims to reduce wait time for callers, reduce data entry work for intake workers and reduce the amount of incoming calls. In addition, calls to the reporter may not be necessary if all the required information is provided via the on-line form, which will also impact workload.

    DCFAS GPS Reports

      UPE met with representatives from DCFAS on November 8, 2019 to discuss how the Department will be using data collected and reported by the new GPS device in all Department vehicles.  The Department receives reports anytime a County car travels 10 mph over the posted speed limit for at least 1 minute.  After 20 such occurrences, a list is generated manually by DCFAS administration and sent to the Department for follow-up.  The Department then identifies the driver and then provides coaching relating to safe driving.  Thus far, only a few such reports have been generated.  The Department plans to lower the threshold for a report down to 10 occurrences in a day within the next month or so.

CPS Restructuring

      On November 13th, UPE met again with representatives from CPS to discuss their plan for the CPS restructuring.  At the meeting, CPS provided additional details regarding the roles of the CORE Team, Work Group, and Focus Group.  Following this meeting, it was agreed that UPE and UPE members would participate in the Work Group and Focus Groups, but not on the CORE Team.  UPE will have one Social Worker and one Clerical Representative on the Work Group and three Clerical and three Social Worker volunteers selected by management.

     DHA Class Study

     On October 30, 2019, UPE and Sacramento County held a fact finding hearing related to the salary of the SES/Human Services Quality and Review Specialist (HSQRS).  UPE argued, as it always has, that the position is a promotional position, and therefore, must be paid at least 5% higher than the next lower class.  In this case, as a result of the Class Study, the HSQRS is now the advanced journey level class and the HSS is now the journey level class.  Therefore, the HSQRS class must be paid at least 5% more.

Unit 3 Meet & Confer Update

Merced Library Evening Hour Pilot 

      On December 3, 2019, UPE met with the County to discuss the rollout of evening hours to the library. The County shared that back in 2018 the library conducted a survey of library customers with responses overwhelmingly in support of extended evening hours. As a result, the Board of Supervisors asked that an evening hour pilot be developed to support the community needs. The pilot will be a six-month pilot in five of the twelve libraries. The extended hours will be 10:00 am-8:00 pm once a week instead of 10:00 am-6:00 pm.
