Helpful information

Military Leave

As many of you know, there has been an issue for some time now with the law that governs paid time off for armed forces related leave and maintaining seniority and the accrual of paid sick, personal and vacation time during such leave. 

The current law states that paid leave would be provided “not exceeding 34 days in any state fiscal year and not exceeding 17 days in any federal fiscal year.”

The good news is you don’t have to spend any time trying to figure out what the above language means because we were able to fix it and expand the benefit. 

Youth Detention Workplace Violence

Attached you will find a fact sheet on this subject we hope you can contract your steward to provide information with incidents of staff violence, local 1368 has incident reports to document issues and concerns. 

 There are links to OSHA guidance in the document, We hope you can share important experiences, especially regarding activities to meet the challenges presented by short-staffing and workplace violence....

Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19

AFSCME provided us with  information on what the CDC and other sources are mentioned for staffing during this COVID-19 pandemic, along with that we need to make sure that those members who are still coming into work are protected adequately. Often times employers deem respirators as the main source of protection but it is really a combination of infection prevention control and personal protective equipment that give an adequate level of protection to workers.
