SEIU District 1199 members with ResCare work hard to provide the best possible care. Members with ResCare in West Virginia and Ohio work with fellow members, shop leaders, and the Member Resource Center to ensure the contract is upheld and rights are protected.
Below are some of the most recent victories of ResCare members:
Cabell County, West Virginia – A member put in a bid to work at a different site and followed procedure. While awaiting notification, which could take 4-8 weeks, the member learned the employer may have disregarded key parts of the contract and conducted hiring. The member waited two months but within four days of reaching out to the Union, the issue was resolved.
Stark County, Ohio – A member was taken off of the schedule and also received a written warning for events related to a training. The member worked with the MRC and the discipline was reduced, the member aced the training, and he was also placed back on the schedule.
Gallia County, Ohio – A member received a discipline relating to mandation. The member joined together with the Union and it was shown that two other less senior employees accepted the assignment, which made the alleged violation moot. The discipline was then reversed and the member made whole.
The Member Resource Center is open from 8:30 AM to 8:00 PM and is available to assist members with contract and workplace issues. “Your Member Resource Center has your back!”
