As members know, workers in the CASA and Lombardi programs are dealing with the state’s plan to outsource elderly homecare to private companies, and the Union continues to be successful in ensuring that this doesn’t result in layoffs.
The Executive Committee meeting scheduled for today, Tuesday, Jan. 7, has been canceled. It has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 6:30 p.m. at 817 Broadway, 12th Floor.
The Union is happy to report that not one SSEU Local 371 member at the New York City Housing Authority faces the threat of layoff.
For the last several months, the Union was able to move nearly 150 at-risk members at NYCHA's community and senior centers into other positions, but as of earlier today 13 workers were still facing termination.
There will be a meeting of the BCW Chapter on Monday, Jan. 6 at 6:30 pm at 817 Broadway on the 12th floor. The Union encourages all chapter members to attend this meeting. Thank you happy new year.
