To Our Members: We’ve Got YOUR Back

By now you have probably received an email from this out-of-state, anti-worker organization calling themselves the Freedom Foundation or OptOutToday? If you are like me, you deleted it quickly and put it in the trash where it belongs.

For those of you who don’t know much about the so-called “Freedom Foundation,” they are funded by out-of-state billionaires who want to destroy unions and elect anti-worker, anti-union candidates that will keep wages low, eliminate paid sick leave, and slash crucial funding for quality public services like the reliable and front line services you provide.

In fact, the Freedom Foundation is a long-time advocate and contributor of so-called Right to Work Laws like Senate Bill 5, which we soundly defeated before and will do again if necessary. We will not allow the wealthy and the out of touch politicians to work in the shadows through failed organizations like the Freedom Foundation to lower wages, take away the benefits, healthcare, and protections you negotiated through your Union. They are trying to attack your solidarity and strength and make your workplaces less safe while eroding your protections and securities to enrich their overflowing pockets.

Don’t believe their lies and misleading information. They are using every trick in the book to further divide workers by badgering SEIU members via your private work email and cell phones. Sowing division and weakening workers’ rights is truly their ONLY goal.

Most of us, no matter our color, origin, or gender, want our communities and our country to be places where freedom is for everyone. We beat groups like them when we defeated Senate Bill 5, and we won’t allow anyone to take away our dignity, rights, and respect on the job and in our communities. That’s why the members of our Union are proud to continue to stand in solidarity, united to fight for the improvement of the lives of all working people as we strive for a more just society for all people. Ignore these out of town billionaires and stand united to win for working families as we have always done.

In Solidarity,

President Becky Williams

State Chapter Basic Delegate Training

State Chapter Newsletter – October

state newsletter updateState of Ohio – Union Chapter News
● The Value of Union Membership and a Strong Chapter. Non-Union employees with the State of Ohio have been forced to accept concessions with no recourse. If you are a non-member, you can sign a membership card online. Recent events show that bureaucrats with the State of Ohio will continue to try to balance the budget on the backs of us, the working class workers, even while many are on the frontlines in this crisis. Preparations for negotiations with the State of Ohio are underway and the member-led negotiating committee will meet soon. We will keep the membership up to date as preparations and upcoming negotiations advance. 

● Emergency Pay Class Action Grievance. SEIU District 1199 has filed a class action grievance for every member citing our Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) language Article 35, Emergencies. We believe that the current state of emergency declared by Governor DeWine falls well within the intent of this language and that all members who work during this declared emergency are entitled to the $8 per hour stipend referenced in the CBA. Send a message to Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and ask him to honor the contract and grant the emergency pay that was mutually agreed upon. We will keep you updated as the grievance moves through the process.

● Educational Development Fund Update. On July 1st, the Educational Development Fund (EDF) for members of SEIU District 1199 renewed with an additional balance of $750,000 available for reimbursement. Additionally, $88,149.07 was left remaining at the end of FY20, which has now rolled over. As of September 12th, 63% of the balance remains available for reimbursement. Funding for the Educational Development Fund was negotiated by member leaders as a part of your collective bargaining agreement and is just one more example of how your Union negotiates benefits for your collective good. 

● State of Ohio Member Successfully Challenges Missed Overtime. A member with the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services volunteered for overtime but a worker who was not currently at work was granted the hours. Through the grievance process, the State of Ohio agreed to properly award the overtime hours. The strength of this part of the contract is important because it prevents workers from being mandated by ensuring that all workers who are working are first canvassed for volunteers. 

● State Member Files Grievance Over Internal Training Quality. An SEIU District 1199 member stood together with other co-workers to file a grievance over the quality of training at a State of Ohio mental health facility. As a result of the grievance, a committee was formed to establish training standards and a new plan. The workers will meet with management within 90 days to finalize the new plan.

SEIU District 1199 Member Benefits
Membership with SEIU District 1199 includes membership with three member benefit programs. Those programs include Union Plus, SEIU Member Benefits, and the SEIU District 1199 WV/KY/OH membership card. Members and eligible family members can now take classes with Eastern Gateway Community College at no-cost online. In 2019, Union Plus announced a new program with Central State University in Dayton, Ohio.

Power the Polls and Help as a Poll Worker

Poll Worker
As you may know, America is facing a record shortage of poll workers this year due to the COVID19 pandemic. Our democracy depends on people from all walks of life who engage in civic participation to make sure that our nation’s elections run smoothly and that the votes of all people are counted.

If you can help with the November election, visit Power the Polls to get details on how to apply and participate. Poll worker positions offer personal protective equipment, paid compensation, and training. If you are a social worker, you may also be able to serve as a poll worker for CEU credit as per the National Association of Social Workers (NASW)

Together, we will work to ensure a safe, accessible, and fair election.

CEU Credit Opportunity for Social Workers

Poll Worker

Social workers play a critical role in Ohio’s health care and social service system. With the current pandemic, there is an urgent need for additional poll workers. Social workers are now able to earn Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits through the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) if they serve as poll workers in November. 

A county elections board must fill out some basic paperwork, note if there are any breaks during the training to work at the polls, and provide an agenda to offer this benefit. We understand that elections boards for Tuscawaras County, Belmont County, Guernsey County, and Clark County, have already decided to participate. 

Ifeolu Claytor (ifeolu@allvotingislocal.org) with All Voting is Local is coordinating with the elections boards and National Association of Social Workers in this area. As a social worker, you can contact your local elections board and ask them to offer this benefit and forward details to Ifeolu Clayto. As more counties confirm this opportunity, details will also be forwarded by All Voting is Local to the NASW. 

Having a safe and fair election is very important. We will be sure to share additional details as they become available.

State Chapter Remote Work Status Update

As you may know, Governor DeWine recently announced that most workers with the State of Ohio will continue on remote work status through at least January 2021. As a Union, state chapter members and leaders have been pushing for as many workers to work from home as possible during the COVID19 pandemic.

The remote work policy issue was raised just days before Governor DeWine made his recent announcement. Members are continuing to stand together for access to additional personal protective equipment and the ability to work remotely whenever possible.

State of Ohio Nurses With OhioMHAS Sound the Alarm on Low Staffing and Unsafe Conditions at Mental Health Facilities Across Ohio

Nurses with OhioMHAS who work in mental health facilities across Ohio say that under staffing has created unsafe conditions and that this puts both staff and patients at-risk of serious injury

For Immediate Release: Thursday, August 20th, 2020
For more information, contact: Joshua Norris | (877) 419-7348

COLUMBUS, OHIO – Union nurses who are members of SEIU District 1199 say that they are working under difficult conditions with severe staffing shortages on a daily basis. While some staffing issues and difficult work conditions pre-existed the COVID19 pandemic, nurses report that such challenges have now gotten significantly worse.

“Nurses with the OhioMHAS are being forced to work short staffed. In one instance, a nurse maintains that she was tasked with caring for as many as 28 patients at one time. Many of these patients had a severe diagnosis. While providing such care is difficult with 2-3 nurses per unit, most recently, 1 nurse has often been assigned per unit to provide care,” said Joshua Norris, an Executive Vice President with SEIU District 1199. “Nurses contend with a variety of challenges, including the possibility of being threatened or assaulted. Short staffing increases the risk of such conditions, not only to nurses but those for whom they provide care. It is not a question of if these conditions will result in a bad outcome such as harm to staff and patients – low staffing ratios make this inevitable.”

Nurses with the OhioMHAS work 12 hour shifts, which can be exhausting physically and mentally, making hazardous conditions even more volatile. Additionally, these nurses also now face potential exposure to COVID19.

“The State of Ohio is well aware of staffing issues at OhioMHAS medical facilities and refuses to hire and retain staff to address these concerns. It is bad enough that the State of Ohio initiated mandatory pay cuts and freezes on the non-Union staff, but now non-bargaining unit staff are using this as a vehicle to attack Union employees,” Norris continued. “Nurses have reported that managerial staff have told members of SEIU District 1199 that because they did not give up pay or make monetary concessions, they now must face short staffing and dangerous situations – this is completely unacceptable. Members with the Union do not have enough staff, enough PPE, or enough relief time, such as time each shift to grab a quick bite to eat. These nurses work tirelessly and give their absolute best every day. The State of Ohio must provide ample staff to keep nurses and patients safe. The State of Ohio must hire adequate staff to ensure that such nurses are able to return home each night without the prospect of serious injury or harm to themselves or those for whom they provide care.”

SEIU District 1199 represents nurses who provide health care services on behalf of the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. 

Union Workers at Ohio’s Correctional Institutions Continue to Call for Additional Protective Equipment as Hazardous Conditions Continue Within ODRC Institutions

Workers continue to request additional protective equipment and for the Ohio DRC to re-evaluate safety and staffing policies amid the COVID19 pandemic.

For Immediate Release: Thursday, August 20th, 2020
For more information, contact: Joshua Norris | (877) 419-7348

COLUMBUS, OHIO – Workers with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction state with urgency that the lives of staff and inmates are at-risk. Members of SEIU District 1199 say that despite good faith efforts to request improvements, they are still not being provided with additional personal protective equipment. Workers also say that ODRC administrators along with Governor Mike DeWine continue to fail to hear their concerns.

“Just since March this year, nearly 100 individuals have lost their lives within ODRC facilities due to the pandemic. These individuals are all confirmed cases or were listed as probable for COVID19,” said Joshua Norris, Executive Vice President for SEIU District 1199. “Union members with SEIU District 1199 who work at ODRC facilities, these workers provide vital social services and health care. It is imperative for more to be done to protect workers at these institutions. We are calling on ODRC administrators, OhioMHAS administrators, Ohio Department of Youth Services administrators, and Governor Mike DeWine, to act now with urgency on behalf of staff and inmates.”

Union members with SEIU District 1199 are asking for the State of Ohio to allow work from home status when possible, such as for workers with OhioMHAS Recovery Services and to provide additional and/or higher-grade protective equipment,” Norris continued. Workers with ODRC institutions say that unless providing direct care, they are not being provided with N95 masks, which offer a higher level of protection against COVID19. N95 masks are being provided at the discretion of administrators. “Workers have the ability to wear cloth or surgical masks – we do not believe that cloth masks offer enough protection in these facilities. Where are the N95 masks and what will be done if conditions deteriorate. If not N95 masks, the State of Ohio could issue face shields to all staff members, in addition to surgical masks, and eliminate cloth facial coverings, among other potential improvements,” Norris continued.

“At this time, 1,026 staff members have contracted COVID19 at ODRC institutions. It is a fact that COVID19 is a substantial risk to these workers. Members continue to ask what more can be done to ramp up the availability of PPE and bolster current safety protocols. These workers are heroes who are putting their lives at-risk on behalf of inmates and the public,” concluded Norris.

SEIU District 1199 leaders and Union members are calling on Governor DeWine and directors with the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction to immediately reevaluate their policies as they relate to COVID-19, the delivery of care and services, and the availability and use of effective personal protective equipment.

SEIU District 1199 represents health care workers and staff members who provide services on behalf of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. SEIU District 1199 also represents workers with OhioMHAS Recovery Services and the Ohio Department of Youth Services.

State of Ohio Remote Work COVID19 Policy

Union Workers Call on Governor DeWine to Implement Work-at-Home Status for Additional State Employees

Workers with the State of Ohio say that Governor DeWine should allow work-at home status for more state workers to protect employees and prevent the spread of COVID19.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Tuesday, August 11th, 2020
Contact: Joshua Norris at 877-419-7348         

COLUMBUS, OHIO – Workers with the State of Ohio say that Governor DeWine should allow work-at home status for more state workers to protect employees and prevent the spread of COVID19. Specifically, state workers with the Ohio Department of Health, who work in Downtown Columbus, are asking Governor Mike DeWine and leaders with the Ohio Department of Health to place workers back on work-at-home status. They say that while they are currently classified as “essential” and though their work is important to the response to the pandemic, their jobs can be done remotely from home.

“Workers with the State of Ohio were sent home in March and April due to the serious risks posed by increasing cases of COVID19. Yet, the reality is that current conditions are more dangerous today with widespread community transmission of COVID19, especially in hot spots like Franklin County,” says Joshua Norris, Executive Vice President of SEIU District 1199. “Members have formally expressed their concerns in recent labor-management meetings with the State of Ohio. As Governor DeWine requests employers to have workers on work-at-home status when possible, we are asking the State of Ohio to do the same, this should include office-based workers with the Ohio Department of Health in Downtown Columbus.”  

Union leaders state that the union members at 35 East Chestnut Street in Columbus work in various public health positions and are playing an important role in the public response to the pandemic. Management has expressed that it is easier to communicate when workers are at a central location.

“The staff members have various concerns about safety and the application of workplace policies, like many workers across Ohio and the country during this difficult time,” continued Norris. “Whether your work for the Ohio Department of Health or ODMHAS, we ask the State of Ohio to re-evaluate which positions are able to complete their work remotely, to be highly responsive to workplace safety concerns during the pandemic, and to maintain work-at-home status whenever possible,”  said Norris.  “Franklin County is one of the hottest spots in Ohio for potential COVID exposure, these individuals are being required to risk their lives by reporting to work. This is not how you flatten the curve. These individuals have proven that they are trusted, capable, and willing to complete the jobs that their fellow Ohioans rely on, while staying safe in their own homes. You don’t want your front line to be exposed during a pandemic, if you can prevent it,” Norris continued. “Now we are learning that the managerial staff at the ODH office in Columbus recently held an in-person retirement party where more than 25 staff congregated to recognize a retiring member of the management team. This sends the wrong message and is further evidence of a lack of respect for these Union members, their families, their communities, and all Ohioans.”

State Newsletter – August 2020

state news● State of Ohio Budget Update. The State of Ohio requested to meet with SEIU District 1199 to discuss possible monetary cuts for members. Union leaders requested further records and in addition to surveying the membership, the Union even asked that members of the State of Ohio Legislature cut their own pay to show a “shared sacrifice.” Read this letter from President Becky Williams to members in June 2020 about this issue. Union leaders and members with SEIU District 1199 stood firm against concessions without additional information. At the end of June 2020, the Gongwer News Service reported the budget was balanced without using the $2.7B Budget Stabilization Fund, AKA the Rainy Day Fund. The 3% wage increase that was negotiated has gone into effect as specified by the contract.

Concessions have not happened because with a Union, you have a legally binding contract. The legal obligation of the State of Ohio is to negotiate with your Union on any changes that would impact your hours of work and terms and conditions of employment, among other mandatory bargaining subjects. To date, no discussions or negotiations have taken place.

● The Value of Union Membership and a Strong Chapter. Non-Union employees with the State of Ohio have been forced to accept concessions with no recourse. If you are a non-member, you can sign a membership card online. Recent events show that bureaucrats with the State of Ohio will continue to try to balance the budget on the backs of us, the working class workers, even while many are on the frontlines in this crisis.

In times like these, we must stick together and work with the other labor organizations that represent members with the State of Ohio. This is the best way to stand together on issues in the pandemic such as safety, fair wages, and protective equipment, and to secure the dignity that all working people have earned and deserve. Not just during this declared state of emergency, but at all times. 

● Upcoming Executive Board and Bargaining Committee Elections. As you may know, contested elections are taking place this month for SEIU District 1199 Executive Board positions with the Adult Parole Authority, the Department of Medicaid, and the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. A by-law change is also on the ballot. Furthermore, members with the State of Ohio are voting to elect members of the bargaining committee for upcoming negotiations. Only members in good standing are allowed to vote in these important elections. A list of candidates can be found here and election voting times/locations are available at this link. If you are not a member, but wish to vote, you can sign a membership card at the voting location or online

● Emergency Pay Class Action Grievance. SEIU District 1199 has filed a class action grievance for every member citing our Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) language Article 35, Emergencies. We believe that the current state of emergency declared by Governor DeWine falls well within the intent of this language and that all members who work during this declared emergency are entitled to the $8 per hour stipend referenced in the CBA. Send a message to Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and ask him to honor the contract and grant the emergency pay that was mutually agreed upon. We will keep you updated as the grievance moves through the process.

● Educational Development Fund Update. On July 1st, the Educational Development Fund (EDF) for members of SEIU District 1199 renewed with an additional balance of $750,000 available for reimbursement. Additionally, $88,149.07 was left remaining at the end of FY20, which has now rolled over. As of July 21st, 80% of the balance remains available for reimbursement. Funding for the Educational Development Fund was negotiated by member leaders as a part of your collective bargaining agreement and is just one more example of how your Union negotiates benefits for your collective good. 

● State of Ohio Member Successfully Challenges Written Reprimand. A member with the State of Ohio was accused of not holding a meeting within a certain required timeframe. The member worked with the Union and member leaders to file a grievance. It was showed through this process that the timeline for such meeting was changed due to a miscommunication that was not the fault of the member and that this was a mitgating factor. In a successful outcome, the repreimand will be removed from the member’s file early. 

● State Member Files Grievance and Defeats Written Reprimand. An SEIU District 1199 member was issued a written reprimand for improperly submitting a time-off request. The member worked with the Union to file a grievance and had never used the State of Ohio’s time management system prior to this event. The member also requested assistance from a supervisor and human resources but received no response. Through the grievance process, the written reprimand was removed from the member’s file completely, as there was no just cause for this discipline. 

SEIU District 1199 Member Benefits
