Here’s the latest from the Human Services Bargaining Team, your member-elected representatives who negotiate on behalf of workers at DHS, OHA and The Department of Education.

On February 25, the bargaining team signed three letters of agreement (LOAs) with management. Each agreement extends an existing policy.

  1. Clarification of Intent Concerning DDS Understanding & Workload Adjustment – LOA 10.1M-05-119.
  2. Overtime Straight-Time Eligible Positions—DDS Medical Consultants – LOA 32.1M-15-281.
  3. Criminal Records Check – Criminal Background Checks (OED) – LOA 132.1C-18-313.

These are extensions of existing letters of agreement. You can find them in the current contact under Appendix A (page 77) using the LOA numbers referenced above.
