Fresh off the heels of the sick time victory, SEIU 721, BU 729 members won another grievance last week, which will bring transparency and fairness to performance evaluations.
After multiple members exposed that management had been conducting surprise performance evaluations, downgrading workers without documentation, overriding direct supervisor evaluations and even outright saying that no grades above “competent” would be given, BU 729 stewards took action and filed a grievance.
The grievance was granted!
This means that evaluations will now function as intended – as a year-round supportive process focused on your development.
Supervisors must have regular meetings with you during your rating period to discuss ratings and expectations.
If you feel that you’ve received an evaluation that violates policy, contact your steward or worksite organizer, or call Member Connection at (877) 721-4YOU.
We’re Not Done Fighting
While this ruling currently only applies to members of BU 729, the rules are clear and we’ll be using this victory as a foundation to ensure that all county employees get a fair evaluation.
