It’s been an honor to serve as your chapter president these last four years, and it was a real treat to cap things off with a fun holiday party and meet and greet with our awesome new School Board and Board of Supervisors members last night.As I step down, I want to take a minute to appreciate our hardworking leaders, members, and activists who serve the kids of San Francisco day in and day out. Whether you keep our schools clean and safe, organize internal operations, directly serve families in our school offices, make sure our kids don’t go hungry, or keep the public informed and engaged at our radio station, I am proud to stand beside you and be part of your union.

I’m also excited to see what comes next. In my role as a steward, I’ll be working on special projects and helping out members with day-to-day worksite issues under the leadership of Anthony Mills, our Chief Steward. Anthony is a fierce advocate for a fair and equitable workplace.

Rafael Picazo will be steering the ship this year, applying the wisdom of his 3 decades of SFUSD experience and leadership to the needs of our members. I have had the pleasure of working with Rafael on the leadership team since I was elected chapter president, and his deep knowledge of District operations has been immensely helpful to the work we’ve done.

I’m also pleased to report that Lorraine Bowser will continue to represent us on the SEIU 1021 Executive Board and be a champion there for the needs of schools workers. Lorraine has been fighting the good fight for our cafeteria workers and others as a member of the bargaining team for 25 années.

We are lucky to have such strong leaders to support the work of our members. I hope you will consider stepping up at your worksite in the coming year to help us build our support network across the District. We’ll have officer and bargaining team elections later this year, and we’ll be putting together action teams for several special projects. There’s never been a better time to get involved and help lead the fight!

Thank you for your support, hard work, and membership these last four years. I am proud to have had the opportunity to serve. Here’s to a bright future!

Why Your Membership Matters

In August, SFUSD responded to an information request about our members based on their interpretation of their legal responsibility. As a result, this week, the Freedom Foundation is sending out postcards targeting our members to try and break them off from union solidarity.

Make no mistake, this is an attack on our power at work and at the bargaining table. It’s an attack on our ability to negotiate fair pay and high quality services for the kids and families of San Francisco. We must stand together and tell these right-wing organizations WE ARE UNITED.

Just this year, SEIU 1021 at SFUSD negotiated almost $7 million in raises for our members, additional hours and professional development for clerks and SNS workers, and improvements to work protections and career ladders. That work goes on, but we need each of you to stand together to make real progress.

United in our union, we’ve not only won strong contracts and enforced them but also amplified the voices of working people in our economy and society. So-called “right to work,” funded by the corporate elites and the wealthy 1%, seeks to take away our ability to join together to negotiate a fair return on our work. Ultimately, their goal is to privatize public services and pay bottom-of-the-barrel wages to line their own pockets.

While these are real challenges for us, they’re not insurmountable if we hold firmly to the values that unite us: fairness, freedom, and equal opportunity for everyone to succeed. This moment in our history is calling on all of us, as union members and as members of a social and economic justice movement, to stick together and use our power in numbers.

Stand with us. I believe that we will win.

Malheureusement, changes in City statutes around employee health coverage limit our ability to extend coverage for families of employees hired after January 8, 2009.

Quoi de neuf dans votre contrat?

Retraite
Contrairement à tous les autres districts scolaires en Californie, le personnel classé dans SFUSD ne font pas partie du système CalPERS. Nous participons avec d'autres travailleurs de la fonction publique dans le système employé San Francisco retraite (SFERS). SFERS est régie par un pension de retraite élus par les employés publics à San Francisco. Le conseil d'administration de la retraite prend des décisions importantes sur la façon dont vos fonds de retraite sont investis, and how much of your paycheck is contributed to pensions.SFERS also provides for retiree health care, qui est financé par un 2-3% contribution des chèques de paie membres dans les départements ville et le comté. en SFUSD, prestations de santé des retraités sont plutôt payés par recettes fiscales QTEA et ne viennent pas directement de votre chèque.

les employés de la fonction publique deviennent admissibles au régime de retraite sur rendez-vous permanent, ou après avoir travaillé 1040 heures dans une 12 période de mois. Vos avantages spécifiques varient en fonction de votre date de location, et vous pouvez obtenir tous les détails de vos prestations spécifiques à www.mysfers.org.

2019 Guide des services de santé
WageWorks FSA Formulaire

Dentaire et Vision
en SFUSD, tous les membres qui sont admissibles à l'assurance-maladie sont également admissibles vision et dentaire couverture. Vous pouvez vous inscrire en plus pour un Compte de dépenses flexibles pour économiser de l'argent sur les taxes pour vos dépenses de soins de santé personnels.

Il y a un avantage maximal à vie de $750 pour orthodontiques, par personne couverte. Chaque année, votre assurance dentaire couvrira $1500-$2000, selon que votre dentiste participe au programme Premier Delta. La couverture commence à 70% pour la première année, et monte 10% par année que vous visitez régulièrement le dentiste, jusqu'à un maximum de 100% couverture.

Comment se qualifier pour la couverture santé
La qualification est un peu complexe – donc je vais le décomposer en quelques catégories.

1. Les travailleurs régulièrement programmés qui sont affectés 30 heures ou plus par semaine
Si vous êtes engagé dans une position régulière (votre chèque ne dit pas “comme requis”) et travailler au moins 30 heures par semaine, vous serez admissible à l'assurance-maladie sur votre premier jour de travail.

2. Réguliers et les travailleurs au besoin qui travaillent au moins 20 heures par semaine, en moyenne
Si vous en moyenne au moins 20 heures par semaine pour toutes les heures travaillées entre Juillet 1 et Juin 30 dans un an, vous serez admissible à l'assurance-maladie à partir du Janvier suivant 1, et doit inscrire lors de l'inscription ouverte.

3. employés exonérés travaillant moins de 20 heures par semaine
Le District couvrira 75% du coût employé uniquement pour le plan Kaiser si vous êtes PEX et travail de moins de la moitié du temps

4. travailleurs PEX dans les services aux étudiants Nutrition
Le District couvrira 100% du coût uniquement employé pour le plan Kaiser si vous êtes un employé de bonne nutrition des élèves nommé permanent exonéré et ne se qualifie pas à l'assurance maladie. Cette disposition une adresse des inégalités de longue date pour les travailleurs qui ont été mal SNS affectés. Aucun des membres actuels entrent dans cette catégorie.

retraitée dentaire
Si vous souhaitez conserver votre assurance dentaire SFUSD lorsque vous prenez votre retraite, vous êtes en mesure de payer de leur poche pour le maintenir pour 18 mois. Généralement, il est une meilleure idée de vous inscrire à la couverture dentaire retraitée à la place.
