Meet and Confer Update

Meet and Confer Update 

9/80 Schedules DHA

1/6/21 

    UPE and DHA continued their meet and confer over the expansion of 9/80 schedules at the Greenhaven and East Commerce Service Centers.  UPE and DHA are nearing agreement over the expansion of the 9/80s at these locations.  As a reminder, the Department is agreeing to add more 9/80 schedules to open lobby bureaus only.  UPE has proposed more slots at all bureaus, but the Department rejected these proposals.  The current plan calls for an additional 40 9/80 slots at East Commerce and 13 slots at Greenhaven.  At each location, this means 20% of staff will have access to an RDO, roughly the same percentage as the rest of the bureaus. The new slots will only be Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.  Slots will be awarded based upon seniority.  Workers will have an opportunity to bid on their preferred slot in order of seniority.  At the time a worker selects their schedule, they will already know which schedules are no longer available.  Workers will be given two weeks’ notice before the process will begin, and then an additional two weeks to opt in or out of the selection process.  Workers who are out at the time of selection will be contacted by their supervisor and given the chance to participate remotely.  

    The Department is not prepared to implement the additional 9/80s until staffing levels improve and COVID subsides.  The Department originally proposed to meet again in June 2021 to assess implementation.  UPE objected and proposed that the two sides agree on clear triggers to institute the new schedules.  The Department requested additional time to consider the proposal and consult with Executive Management.  The two sides plan to meet again in the coming weeks, after DHA management meets to discuss.
