Workers call for dignity, fairness and empowerment

Lorain County, Ohio –Workers have concerns that the community could suffer because LCCAA CEO, Jackie Boehnlein, wants to restructure by eliminating those same Educators and Family Service Workers who were part of the Agency passing the Head Start Federal Review. Workers in Lorain County will gather at Lorain County Community Action Agency, at the administration entrance on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 1:00pm to educate the community on the unfair labor practices of the agency.

Many teachers at the LCCAA Head Start program are educators with years of classroom experience. They are subjected to layoffs because administration doesn’t deem them educated enough. Full-time family service workers have been reduced to part-time or replaced by temporary workers. Workers are speaking to the community asking, “How can we empower you when they won’t empower us?”

SEIU District 1199 WV/KY/OH represents nearly 110 full-time and part-time staff members at Lorain County Community Action Agency’s Head Start.

WHO: LCCAA, the community and members of SEIU District 1199 WV/KY/OH

WHEN: Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 1PM
