Victory for DHS Workers in Arkansas PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 13 June 2012 21:05

Freida Hostler and Kimberly Steward are smiles after learning that their grievance against the Department of Human Services was a win. "As family service workers, we are always in court and the State is suppose to represent us but because of a mix up in paper work, we were told that we would have to have our lawyer for our court cases. Me and Kim called Toney and he went to work for us and 3 days later, we got a call from chief counsel of DHS but also the Assistant Attorney General for the state of Arkansas telling us that the state would represent us in all our court cases. We really appreciate the hard work Toney did for us, he is always working hard for us and all the other employee in the Jefferson County DHS office in Pine Bluff Arkansas."

This is just one example of how Local 100 is making a difference in the state of Arkansas. Frieda and Kimberly have helped sign up 7 people in the Pine Bluff and Lonoke offices. They really believe in our motto, "By the people, for the people."

Dallas Local 100 Goes to Bat for Members Cheated out of Seniority Because of NEA PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 21 March 2012 16:45

Richard Pritchett has worked as a dispatcher and bus driver in Dallas County Schools since 1980 and had accrued 27 years of seniority. A few years ago, the NEA used its influence to get the seniority policy changed to exclude time not spent as a Driver for purposes of Seniority and raises.

The NEA and DCS didn’t grandfather employees like Richard and he automatically lost 12 years seniority which meant a big pay cut because bus routes, field trips and pay raises are based on seniority. The policy change put him behind people who have been there half the time he has.

            Local 100 is asking for an amendment to the policy that will grandfather Richard and any others in the same situation and give everyone full seniority.

            Local 100 has met with the head of HR and the Chief Financial Officer, has asked for a meeting with the Superintendent and will meet with the School Board president next.
