In December, multiple ResCare employees worked with staff at the Member Resource Center to win grievances. ResCare workers provide critical services to individuals with disabilities and have been an important part of the Member Resource Center’s work.
While there have been many victories during the Member Resource Center pilot and grievances are ongoing, the victories below were won in just the last two weeks. The successful grievances were filed by ResCare workers from Vinton County (OH), Butler County (OH), and Cabell County (WV).
• A worker was disciplined outside of the 10 day window provided by the contact with ResCare. After contacting the Member Resource Center to file a grievance, the discipline was withdrawn and ResCare agreed instead to provide re-training.
• A worker was not called for an overtime opportunity in violation of the contract. After filing a grievance with the Member Resource Center, the member was paid 8 hours of overtime to compensate for the failure to follow procedure. ResCare committed to honoring seniority in the future.
• After a worker earned holiday pay, their check was shortchanged. After calling the Member Resource Center and filing a grievance, the issue was settled within the month of December.
If you believe your contract or rights are being violated at work, don’t hesitate to contact the Member Resource Center. The Member Resource Center is open every weekday from 8:30AM to 8PM. Your Member Resource Center has your back!
