UPE News Item

COT/ Court Professional Update

COVID Prevention Plan

       On September 21, 2020, UPE met with the Sacramento Superior Court to discuss its’, “COVID Prevention Plan”. This plan has been in place for some time, but since they recently brought it to our attention, it gave us an opportunity to review it to see if there were any concerns.       

      The purpose of this document was to ensure that employees are safe while at work, but the biggest thing UPE saw missing was an effective plan to reduce the number of workers who were actually reporting to work. In addition, UPE and the court board did find inaccurate verbiage. For instance, the document states, “no public will be entering through the security screening area”. We know that is no longer true and the Court agreed to revise the wording on the document.

      UPE has been advocating for the equal implementation of an alternate and or rotating schedule for all classifications and all court locations. For some reason, the Court has resisted efforts by UPE to have maximum alternative and or rotating schedules and telework. Despite the Court’s unwillingness to provide equity for all, we will continue to push for it. 

      Lastly, UPE has sent a list of information requests and questions to provide more clarity to the membership on the Court’s COVID prevention plan. As we receive information, we will update you all in hopes that our suggestions have been implemented. We will also continue to advocate for the safety and fair treatment of all our members working for the Court!     

       UPE would like to thank the following Court Office Technical and Court Professional board members for their advocacyat this meet and confer: Nancy Wallace, Shawn and Tammi Boxer, Leava Ong, Marie Sims, Lizette Sweezer-Morris, Andrea Howard, Paul McGee, Lina Vasquez, and Suzette Cade. 

TOGETHER

WE ARE STRONG
