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”

26. July 2017 · Comments Off on Speak Up for a Clean Retirement! · Categories: Your Rights · Tags: ,

We may be able to divest SF’s retirement fund from fossil fuels (which are increasingly volatile and subject to being orphaned assets that are stuck in the ground) but we need everyone possible to step up and be heard! The vote is going to be close either way, but this fight is winnable.

SF workers and residents, please send your message today and come to the meeting if you can!

20. March 2017 · Comments Off on Towards a Community Hiring Plan · Categories: News, Your Rights

Outside of bargaining, we’re working with the District, the Families Union, UESF, Close the Gap, and Jobs with Justice on a community hiring plan that will improve outreach to underserved communities. SEIU is taking a leading role in developing this plan, and we really want broad member participation in putting together this plan and the materials and outreach around it. Please get in touch with Josh if you’re interested!
