Re: Step II Contractual Grievance

OMS FSW’s Processing & Taking Medicaid Applications

Article I. Purpose

Article IV. Work Schedules & Overtime

Article VII. Discipline

Article XXV. Non-Discrimination

Dear Ms. Page-Hawkins:

CWA Local 1081 submits this Step II Class Action Contractual Grievance on behalf of all of our Union’s Family Service Workers members assigned to the tenth floor Office of Medicaid services to protest their being assigned taking Medicaid applications as well as primarily processing them:

While our above cited adversely affected members have no problem assisting the agency’s other offices with their overflow, assigning them more than six to seven cases per day to interview is both too burdensome and counterproductive.

The resolution CWA Local 1081 respectfully demands to this grievance consists of the County both hiring more staff and obtaining additional ancillary office space to augment the privately-owned 18 Rector Street structure.

We seek a hearing in this regard.


David H. Weiner, President, CWA Local 1081
