DHA: CalSAWS Update

Greetings, union sisters and brothers. Your UPE 005/008 CalSAWS meet and confer team met again on August 7, 2023, with DHA management. In response to one of UPE’s proposals, management has agreed to let line staff use on-site lab rooms or other private spaces to complete their web-based training.

Your team has also proposed that DHA line staff be “held harmless” for errors, omissions, and loss of productivity for the six months following CalSAWS go-live.

In addition, your team proposed that no more than two (2) intakes shall be scheduled each day per worker for the first week of CalSAWS.

We will be meeting again soon with DHA management to hear their responses.

Stay tuned!

Thank you to the UPE board members for their advocacy,

James Starr, Patrick Hunter, Stephanie McCall, Chris Jenkins, Jennifer Avalo, Erin Crocker, and Monica Stephens
