27. August 2018 · Comments Off on September 19: Important Hearing About Racism in Our City Departments · Categories: News, Stand Up!, Your Rights





Speak Out for Equity
September 19

SF Board of Supervisors’ Government Audit and Oversight Committee

On September 19 at 11 AM, the Government Audit and Oversight Committee will be conducting a hearing regarding racism and discrimination in SF City & County Departments. Come and testify about discrimination you have experienced working for SF City and County.

Workers across the City have spoken out about unfair treatment and unnecessary disciplines against their coworkers and the disproportionate targeting of African American workers. They’ve
spoken out about the lack of diversity in some departments, citing that certain ethnicities are hired for particular job types based on racial stereotypes. Others have seen the disproportionate number
of African American workers threatened with separation from probation if they did not agree to extend their probation period.

We’re demanding an end to these threats and unfair treatment. We are asking city leaders to address the systemic issues leading to the unfair treatment of workers of color. Show that you stand against injustice, hate, and ignorance and join us at this hearing on Wednesday, September 19.

WHEN: Wednesday, Sept. 19 11 AM – 1 PM

WHAT: Government Audit and Oversight hearing regarding discrimination in SF City & County Departments.

WHERE: SF City Hall, RM 250
RSVP with the Member Resource Center: (510) 350-9811.

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”

Justice is Due: Tell Governor Brown to End The Cruel Summer

On Tuesday, July 12, the California Senate passed AB 621, the bill that will end the cruel summer for over 284,000 classified school workers in California. The bill now heads to the Governor’s desk!

This means he’s listening and it also means this is the time to make our voices heard!
