UPE News Item

005 Meet & Confer Update

GA Packet Changes

      UPE met and conferred with representatives from DHA regarding planned changes to the GA packets used by GA workers.  These packets are pre-made by Stock Clerks at 5th St. and some clerical workers at open lobby bureaus.  The changes are the result of a proposal from the GA PSW.  The old packets contained forms that are required to be signed in the presence of a GA worker.  These were being filled out by clients at home and this was requiring the worker to ask the clients to fill out and sign the form again during their intake or renewal.  To fix this problem, the Department proposed to change the forms being used in the packets.  This will not result in an increase in the total number of packets that clerical workers need to create.   

      UPE made it clear that workers will need a clear explanation of changes in the packets and be provided an opportunity to ask questions to make sure they understand the changes.  The Department agreed to make information available to workers in advance of unit meetings so they have time to review and ask questions.  Additionally, in response to UPE’s questions, the Department made it clear that there are no changes in expectations for work load.   

      The changes should take place in September or October.  UPE would like to thank 005 board member Jennifer Avalo for participating in this meet and confer.
