DPH workers lead the charge for a fair, transparent, and equitable plan to distribute COVID-19 vaccines

When told vaccinations for frontline workers at Laguna Honda would have to wait until the first two weeks of January 2021, Nebyat Negaci, a 10-year employee at Laguna Honda, was determined to change that.

Last month, frontline workers were told they needed to wait to be vaccinated, despite vaccines being made available to managers not working at the bedside. “I believe if you are ready today then you deserve to take your vaccine today,” said Nebyat, who began organizing to ensure the safety of her unit.


P103 nurses fight for COVID-19 leave

On Tuesday, January 19, Registered Nurses from San Francisco’s hospitals, clinics, and beyond spoke out at the Health Commission meeting to condemn the ongoing refusal by the city to provide emergency COVID-19 leave to all of San Francisco’s nurses. 

When the city rolled out its COVID-19 leave bank last March, they decided that P103 nurses should not have access to that emergency leave. Many P103 nurses often work full-time hours or beyond in in some of the most dangerous work settings, such as the COVID-19 ICU, quarantine hotels, and street testing. 


Nonprofit workers fight for safety and security

Workers at Larkin Street Youth Services successfully secured funding from the city to bring on 15 new workers who became members of our union. We are now working to extend funding for these jobs beyond the initial year, while also bargaining our next contract.

At Tenderloin Housing Clinic, we successfully pressured the employer to expand access to PPE to keep workers safe, as clients often come in without masks. We also won new thermometer equipment, meaning people entering the offices first have their temperature taken by a machine that gives a reading from a safe distance.

At Progress Foundation, a member went on a leave of absence because her spouse was high-risk for COVID-19 complications. After six months, the employer said they needed to return or have their ongoing absence considered as a resignation. We won a grievance to extend that members’ leave for an additional year.


OEWD member wins over $1,000 in back pay

In December 2019, a member working in San Francisco’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development filed a grievance over working above their classification without additional pay.

“It was a very scary thing for me to file and I almost didn’t do it,” said the member, who requested anonymity. Just last month, this member received over $1,000 in compensation they were owed for working out of class. “My claim literally took a year, which is crazy but I’m glad it had a positive ending for me.”

Make sure you contact a steward, rep, or the Member Resource Center (1-877-687-1021) if you believe you’re in a situation where you’re working above your classification without appropriate pay.


Need our help with an EEO claim? Let us know!

For years, our union has called for an end to harassment and discrimination by management against our city’s workers. The work we’ve done over the years has begun coming to fruition, as evidenced by William Gould, former National Labor Relations Board President being brought in to review San Francisco’s EEO practices, as well as the creation of the the city’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy.

Although it is our work that, in large part, has led to these developments, our union is not automatically notified of EEO complaints by DHR.
