On the heels of filing an unprecedented multi-union grievance against LA County over ICHS working conditions, we held a highly successful Safety Check outside of Twin Towers!
Hundreds of ICHS frontline workers came out on April 26th to participate in the massive grievance investigation to pinpoint the health and safety issues at both Twin Towers and Men’s Central Jail. In total, over 200 surveys were collected during the Safety Check with countless others taking the time to write personalized messages to ICHS management on a large board.
Your voices are being heard loud and clear, and starting to swing the pendulum! Management is answering the grievances by sending corrective plans and creating a safety committee to monitor and implement safety plans.
Next steps: Fill out an affidavit on any unsafe conditions you observe. Bringing awareness is a crucial compo- nent of correcting the problem! Submit your affidavits to your worksite organizer and/or call the Member Connection at 877-721-4YOU to turn in your affidavit.
In the next few weeks we will be conducting safety walk-throughs, and reporting back your survey results.
Make no mistake, together we’re exposing the health and safety issues, and working as a strong union will be the key in solving the crisis once and for all!
Get involved and STAY UNION STRONG.
