05. June 2018 · Comments Off on Parcel Tax Negotiations Update · Categories: News

We met on Monday for our third negotiation session about the potential Prop G Parcel Tax. Our asks include additional salary for all members to help us reach city parity, a minimum 4-hour schedule for student nutrition workers, summertime paid training for clerks, expansion of environmental health and a training program for new staff, and community school support for the new transitional housing shelter at Buena Vista Horace Mann.

We anticipate winning on most of these issues. If one is particularly important to you, call the school board and let them know, or come to the June 12 meeting at 6pm!

Because of a potential November ballot measure that could overturn the parcel tax, it may be several months before this is fully resolved. We’ll keep you posted. If you want more information on our political work, please give us your personal email address.

22. May 2018 · Comments Off on SFUSD Should Expand our Environmental Health Program · Categories: News

Remarks by Chapter President Josh Davidson on Board Policy 3514.1: Hazardous Substances, adopted by SFUSD Board of Education tonight:

I’m encouraged to see the boarding considering this policy and hope that you will adopt it tonight. 

As you may know, SFUSD used to have 15 full time staff working on hazardous materials management, abatement, and safety training. We call these folks “Asbestos Worker IIs” because they were hired and trained in a simpler time when we didn’t know as much about the health impacts of pesticides, cleaning chemicals, materials used in science labs, and so forth.

Our expanding science program, aging facilities, and increasing safety standards have changed the work of these members over the last twenty years, and attrition from retirement has left us with three remaining staff. The remaining staff are also near retirement.

School safety presents unique challenges, which means that it’s hard to find folks that we can hire — especially on our salary scale. In our parcel tax conferences with your senior staff, one of the priorities we identified was building a training program to develop existing staff to take on this work, with a goal of reaching 6 positions by 2020 and building a pipeline for future staffing. 

I hope when you confer with your staff about this policy you will encourage them to allocate resources to build out this program.

11. May 2018 · Comments Off on Sick Leave Donations – What You Need to Know · Categories: Stand Up!, Your Contract, Your Rights

In the 2016-2017 Contract, SEIU added language to support donation of sick leave to your coworkers. Unlike some other units, we don’t have a limited “open enrollment” period or a “bank” to manage, instead we collect donations for each individual who needs leave.

How to Donate
First, let us know you have leave available that you’re willing to donate.

If you already know whom you want to donate to, you can download the donation form here and turn it in to any steward.

Otherwise, we’ll keep you informed when members need donations, and ask you to fill out a donation form for each member in need.

One of our stewards will collect the forms for each member in need and deliver them to Labor Relations.

Donations will be used in a cycle, 2 hours at a time. Any unused leave will be returned after the member’s needs have been met.

How to Request a Donation
Just let any steward know you need help. Gesner Nazaire at Cesar Chavez is your steward in charge of catastrophic leave.

You must meet the eligibility requirements:

  1. Unable to work because of your (or an immediate family member’s) illness or injury for at least 30 days
  2. All of your sick leave will be used up
  3. You have documentation of your medical need*
  4. You are eligible for accrued sick leave
  • We respect your privacy: you do not need to tell us, or HR, the specific nature of your medical condition. We only need “a statement signed by a doctor, dentist, podiatrist, licensed clinical psychologist or Christian Science practitioner with information sufficient to certify your illness”

Read all the details in your contract
