008 Meet & Confer Update

DHA Classification Study 

      On January 28, 2020, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve the changes associated with the DHA Classification Study.  As a result, ES will be made into HSS and SES will be retitled Human Services Quality and Review Specialists effective the next pay period, which begins February 3, 2020. Pay increases will take effect at the same time as the classification changes and should appear on the February 21, 2020 pay check.

 9/80 Schedules

     UPE and DHA were scheduled to meet on January 27, 2020, to continue the discussion and expansion of the 9/80 schedules.  UPE had sent DHA a number of questions and information requests the week before in hope of having a productive meeting.  Unfortunately, the Department cancelled the meeting at the last minute.  UPE remains committed to seeing this issue through and has already contacted the Department to reschedule.  UPE will update the membership after that meeting occurs.

      UPE and CPS met and conferred on January 17, 2020, over the Department’s plan to utilize a 71-J Contract to hire the Hop, Skip, Ride, a ride-sharing service, to assist with school runs that FSW’s cannot cover.  The Board of Supervisors approved a limited contract and the Department will test the service until June 2020.  There should not be any change to the way Social Workers request FSW support.

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.

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.

      UPE filed an unfair labor practice charge. PERB invited both parties to an informal hearing. Both UPE and the Court agreed to place the unfair in abeyance (on hold) in order to find common ground, if possible.

       At the meeting, the Court provided UPE a proposal.

005 Meet & Confer Update

Access Team & APS Changes 

      UPE and representatives from DCFAS and DHS met and conferred on January 23, 2020, over changes to the ACCESS Team and the APS Clinic.  Due to a recent state audit, the Departments were forced to make some changes regarding how certain referrals were processed.  For the ACCESS Team in DCFAS, this means processing referrals as before, but they are no longer required to close the case.  The Audit determined that only clinicians can close cases.

9/80 Work Schedules 

 On February 19, 2020, UPE and DHA met and conferred over the 9/80 expansion.  DHA provided UPE with the number of additional 9/80 schedules it proposes to add to each service center.  UPE again asked that the Department justify and provide supporting data explaining why it is choosing to limit the total number of RDOs at each worksite to 20% of staff and why it is excluding certain days from consideration.  UPE believes that the Department should make as many 9/80s available as possible and be able to justify any limitations that they place.  Thus far, they have not done so.  UPE again proposed expanding the number of 9/80s at all Bureaus not just the service centers.
