Local 100 Members fight Surcharges, Driver goes back to work PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 19 May 2015 18:47

Local 100 members addressed the Board about drivers being fired because of late surcharge payments which cause their license to be suspended at the Dallas County Schools Board Meeting April 16

Aaron Hobbs met David Walker, who had told his story to the board. His license had been suspended June 2014 while he was on a leave. He had been rehired in August but he didn’t get the DPS notice that his license was suspended until March 2015. He notified his supervisor and he has not driven since. Instead of giving him a letter of termination, which would let him apply for unemployment, he had been kept on the employment rolls without pay. Hobbs agreed to look for a monitor’s position for him until he got the license back and then let him return to driving. His unemployment claim is being appealed.

David returned to work the following Monday, April 20 as a monitor and will return to driving when he gets the license reinstated.


There is no clear and easy solution to this. Dallas County puts all the blame on Drivers and ignores the real problem, which is that the DPS Contractor, who handles the DPS paperwork, does not notify the drivers that their license has been suspended in a timely or efficient way.

• We suggest, children of HISD employees should not be living in poverty, thus the School Board should pass a policy that does not allow less than $10.10 per hour for any job offered by the District.

• We should change 11 month custodians to 12 months, because it adversely effects wages of mostly women.

• HISD can be a leader in Houston to end poverty for our children.

• We are asking the HISD Board Trustees to vote to get our children out of poverty and on the way to a better life.

Average Food Service Workers Pay in 2015

$10.69, after probation

Facts:

1. 1302 hours per year for average food service worker

2. 186 days at 7 hours per day = 1302 hours per year

3. 1302 X 10.69 = $13,918 salary per year

4. 1 additional hour per day would increase income by

Weekly - $53 Monthly - $213 Yearly - $1988

Total salary - $15,905 with one more hour per day

There has been a long history, since the establishment of the District in March 1923, of the Food Service Department paying sub-standard wages. This doesn't mean it always has to be this way.

Food Service employees need to provide for their children, at the wages they are paid and the hours they are given to work, many are forced to raise their children in poverty. The District should not be an agent of ingrained poverty through multiple decades.

HISD workers should be able to stop the cycle of poverty and give their children a chance at the pursuit of happiness guaranteed by the U.S Constitution. Academic studies from various Universities have made it clear a child raise in poverty is at a disadvantaged throughout their lives. They are at greater risk, than non-poverty children, of not graduating from High School and have little chance of finishing four years of college.

The education establishment of our great city should be the leader of putting an intense focus on eradicating poverty, since the absence of poverty will enhance our children's ability to learn the skills they need to be functional in society, which would reduce the dropout rate, increase test scores, raise the graduation rate, up college attendance and make this city a productive part of a great country. Give our poor children a chance and they will reward us with success and our city will be better for it. Give our kitchen moms a chance and they will make us proud.
