008 Meet & Confer Update

Hop Skip Ride

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.

The Department will follow the normal procedure for filling school runs.  If regular staff cannot cover the run, the Department will email all FSW’s regarding the opportunity.  The Department agreed to list on the email how much time FSW’s have to respond to the email, but the Department will continue to select workers on a first-come-first-served basis.  UPE also insisted that FSW’s be given the maximum amount of time possible to respond before the Department moved to Hop, Skip, Ride.  

If the Department cannot find an FSW to take the school run, the Supervisor will set up a ride with Hop, Skip, Ride.  Hop, Skip, Ride will then cover the school
