State Members Awarded Settlement After Improper Denial of Overtime

Two nurses who are members with the State of Ohio recently received significant settlements after overtime was improperly denied. Due to no fault of their own, the nurses were placed on a “no patient contact” list temporarily. The members had no knowledge of the reason they were on the list and were unable to work overtime, which was a significant monetary loss. 

The members stood together and contacted the Member Resource Center. Through the arbitration process, the members showed that this loss of overtime hours denied due process. A settlement was reached with the state, which had a combined value of over $45,000.  

If you believe your contract is being violated at work, do not hesitate to contact the Member Resource Center. The Member Resource Center is open from 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM each Monday through Friday. “Your Member Resource Center has your back!”

Issue 4 in North Ridgeville. This levy renewal is for the North Ridgeville Branch of the Lorain Public Library System. This levy funds 83% of branch operations. The current levy will expire at the end of 2019.

Issue 2 in Euclid. This levy renewal is for the Euclid Public Library. The current levy for the library will expire at the end of 2019. Since the last levy was passed in 2014, the library has had 2.2 million visitors.

Issue 8 in Stark County. This levy is for the Stark County District Library system. The current levy will expire at the end of 2019. In 2018, around 4 million items were checked out and returned from this library system.

These levies provide critical funding for public libraries across Northeast Ohio. The levies will be on the May 7th ballot in 2019 for voters from respective localities.

Cleveland Clinic Union Members Receive Strong Support From Ohio House Members

Working people continue to call on the Cleveland Clinic to do the right thing and lift wages for their hard working Union members. These workers at the Cleveland Clinic were recently excluded from a plan to raise wages at the Clinic to a minimum of $15 an hour.

This month, a substantial list of legislators with the Ohio House of Representatives wrote to Cleveland Clinic CEO Tomislav Mihaljevic asking him to be fair to Union members at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital and Lutheran Hospital. Among others, the Union members have also received support from United States Senator Sherrod Brown and leaders with the Ohio Senate
