Dear Brothers and Sisters:
Recently you received a letter from me telling you of some of the concerns that we had as a result of COVID-19 and the actions that we have taken to alleviate some of the hardships that it is causing many of us to face. Some of you may have received a copy of the letter that was incomplete. The letter was revised to include language from the Childrens’ Hospital’s Contract concerning Layoffs, due to layoffs not being totally done on the basis of Seniority. Therefore, I am having the revised letter included in this edition of the newsletter.

Also, I hope that both Hospitals have heard our request and taken into consideration that there should be no PRN workers, temporary workers, contract workers or probationary workers employed by the Hospitals in any Union represented position that is being furloughed or ATOed. Although it may not be a violation of the Collective Bargaining Agreements, it is surely the right thing to do. I apologize for the errors or misunderstandings.

Local 722 is committed to providing you with as much information as we can about the COVID – 19 crisis. This pandemic is new to all of us, and if you go to the Local 722 website: www.seiu722.org you will find all the information we have so far. As you know things with this crisis has been ever changing. We will most likely receive more information prior to the next newsletter reaching you. So we encourage you to visit the website regularly to see if there are more updates. On the home page click on the COVID – 19 link and you will go to the page with all the most current information and resources that we have. Please stay safe, stay healthy, stay informed, and don’t forget to check in on family and friends. Lets have each others back to get through this crisis.
