ResCare members with SEIU District 1199 work hard to provide quality care. ResCare members in the last several weeks have worked with the Union and their co-workers to receive needed back pay, work through scheduling changes, and resolve other important points of contention.
• Mineral County, West Virginia. A member was denied a transfer unjustly. Standing together with the Union, the member received approval for a new worksite. Schedules had also been missing from the worksite and after the issue was raised, they were promptly posted.
• Wood County, West Virginia. A member was denied work for two shifts and after speaking out through the Union, the member was paid for the time that had been lost.
• Raleigh County, West Virginia. A member was put on administrative leave during an investigation due to an unsubstantiated allegation. Even after the issue was resolved, for two weeks, the company failed to put her back on the schedule and expected the member to get to the worksite with very short notice upon notification. The member joined together with the Union and eventually was paid for all normal work hours.
• Belmont County, Ohio. A member was unjustly mandated after the work schedule was changed with less than two weeks of notice. This was a contract violation and working together, the scheduling issue was resolved within 5 days.
