PUSD

PUSD did not change a job description after they agreed to do so after a meet and confer. SEIU filed a group grievance and it was remedied at step one by changing the job description. Steward Arthur Hall worked on this case.

PUSD was using a substitute in a vacant bargaining unit position as a behind the wheel trainer in the transportation department, essentially giving away bargaining unit work and violating the contract. SEIU filed a group grievance and the issue was remedied at step one. The district agrees not to give away bargaining unit work and will only utilize subs when regular permanent behind the wheel trainers are unavailable. Additionally, the vacant position will also be posted internally. Steward Arthur Hall worked on this case.
