005 & 008 Meet & Confer Update

IHSS DocuSign

       On July 31, 2020, UPE met with the County to discuss the IHSS DocuSign Implementation. DocuSign is a system intended to help IHSS organize, manage, and electronically sign client documents. Currently, the department is using SharePoint for electronic forms, however, over the next few years it will be phased out. The department will use the next couple of months to test DocuSign to ensure all the issues are worked out prior to full implementation.

005 Meet & Confer Update

Animal Care Return to Work Plan

     On July 29th, 2020, UPE met with the Animal Care Department to discuss their return to work plan. Animal Care is one of UPE’s smallest locations with fewer than ten members. The department claims to have enough space to ensure that social distancing guidelines are followed, but the situation becomes questionable regarding the “front counter” and the amount of space between workers. The department states that they have distanced workers, but there are no dividers between them.

005 Meet & Confer Update

Sacramento County Employees’ Retirement System (SCERS)- Return to Work Plan

       On July 30th, 2020, UPE met with SCERS to discuss their return to work plan. What was surprising is that with every department that we have met with over the last two months, SCERS had a plan but will not be using it. They will not be using the plan because they have no intention to begin the conversation about returning to work until October. Apparently, SCERS has “cracked the code” to allow their workers to work remotely, which we applaud. We must note that only five UPE members work there, but we have other locations that are considered “small shops”, yet they have called their workers in as if it were business as usual.

Environmental Management Department- Return to Work Plan

      On July 29th, 2020, UPE met with Environmental Management to discuss their return to work plan. The department compiled a detailed document that outlines their plans to keep our members safe. There will be no issues with the supply of PPE as well as cleaning and disinfecting supplies. They have plenty of hand sanitizer throughout the building as well as at each workstation. When asked about the use of masks, the department responded that all employees will wear a mask when they are not at their works station, and if accommodations need to be made due to a medical condition, they have face shields available.  All customers are by appointment only and will be required to wear a face mask while in the building.

UPE and DHA Meet Over EBT Card Mailing Changes

      On July 28, 2020, UPE and DHA held a meet and confer regarding the Fiscal Unit at the 28th Street Bureau and the Department’s change in addressing EBT Card envelopes for mailing.   The County suggested that the vendors who are currently contracted by the State to mail EBT cards to clients have become inundated due to COVID-19. Various counties throughout the state are attempting to assist those vendors in getting EBT cards out to clients.  The department has determined that with the additional six workers from other bureau locations assigned to the Fiscal unit at 28th St., they can now assist in mailing out EBT cards more expeditiously than the vendors.
