Most will lose jobs at Algiers schools

Waving signs and chanting loudly, a group of disgruntled janitors staged a small demonstration Friday outside the main office of the Algiers Charter Schools Association, questioning the association's decision to ditch their company and hire a more expensive one for maintenance and janitorial work next year.

The dozen or so picketing janitors, who work for the custodial and maintenance company GCA Services Group, said they didn't understand why ACSA had refused GCA's bid of $2.168 million for the upcoming year of service, thereby putting about 60 employees out of work. Instead, ACSA hired commercial cleaning company Jani-King, which submitted a bid of $2.257 million.

"To me, it's a very underhanded thing," said Helen White, 68, who until last week worked as a custodian at Edna Karr High School in Algiers. "Nobody even let me know. I had to find out through my co-workers."

HISD Crossing Guard en Love Elementary Margott Williams, HISD Crossing Guard en Love Elementary

Ms. Williams hablo enfrente de la mesa directiva del HISD el 10 de junio  para discutir los problemas del transito de autos en las escuelas. Los automóviles que vienen al sur de la calle Sheppard en el área de the Heights transita a exceso de velocidad y ella no tiene la habilidad de hacerlos que conduzcan mas despacio.

Como en la mayoría de las escuelas, Love tiene luces intermitentes para la zona de escuelas pero muchas veces cuando ella llega a las 7 AM no están trabajando. Ella siempre reporta el mal funcionamiento de las luces y usualmente toma de tres o mas días para que las reparen, poniendo en extreme peligro y estrés a Margott por que los automóviles  viajan rápido y con las luces apagadas y ella tiene mucho miedo por las vidas de los niños que ayuda a cruzar a diario.

Margott dijo, “Con mas y mas gente moviéndose en las calles de Houston esta mas congestionado y mas automovilistas no obedecen las luces intermitentes de la zona de escuelas. HISD necesita hacer algo para resolver este problema antes que un niño salga lastimado. Nosotros los que cruzamos a los niños tenemos responsabilidad pero no autoridad.”

Hortencia Domínguez regresa a trabajo PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 10 June 2010 21:13

Hay una buena razón por la que Hortencia tiene una risa grande en su rostro.

El primer día de trabajo de Hortencia en GCCSA fue el 20 de Agosto de 1991, son 19 años de empleo con el mismo empleador hasta abril 12 del 2010 cuando fue despedida. Ella tiene una devoción completa en su trabajo con GCCSA, hasta que  la despidieron por dejar a un estudiante en el salón cuando ella llevo a los demás niños al receso. El niño estuvo desatendido por dos minutos, con todo eso no era suficiente para pasar por alto los 19 años de buen  trabajo de Hortencia.

Tan pronto que ella fue despedida ella llamo al sindicato, Local 100 y se le lleno un reclamo demandando que ella fuera reinstalada inmediatamente. Ella suplico y fue rechazada en la audiencia del nivel II pero en la audiencia de nivel III, junto al Dr. Reynols, la decisión fue reinstalarla en su lugar de trabajo. GRACIAS Dr., Reynols por escuchar a Hortencia y dejarla quedarse en GCCSA.

Hortencia dijo después de saber que regresaría al trabajo.
“cuando  fui despedida yo nunca pensé tener la oportunidad de regresar a mi trabajo, pero el sindicato me dijo que no me venciera y que siguiera luchando por la justicia. Si usted me mira en mi centro de trabajo o en una reunión de GCCSA usted ya sabe por que tengo una gran sonrisa en mi rostro, axial como en la foto. Si usted no es miembro del sindicato Local 100 usted tiene que unirse hoy por que ellos te ayudan a luchar por la justicia y los derechos en el trabajo y con una unión fuerte  cada trabajador tiene voz y seguridad en el trabajo.”

Local 100 Wins Arbitration To Get Aide's Job Back PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 09 June 2010 21:57

ReCheena Carrier was an employee of GCCSA for over five years. In November, 2009, she was accused of child endangerment because her Teacher had allowed a young student to somehow leave the facility and go home to her father.ReCheena Carrier

Carrier was out of the classroom with five children teaching them a new lesson called "You've Got Mail" when the incident occurred, but GCCSA fired her anyway.

The Union took the case to arbitration and won.
Carrier will be given her job back with back pay, which should total close to $9,000.

Carrier said, "I never thought I would get my job back, and I want to personally thank Head Start Teacher Laurastine Lane for testifying at the hearing, Without her help we would not have won. It felt really good to have a fellow Local 100 member testify and tell the truth. If there are three things I learned during the seven months I was off work, they are:

  1. My faith in God pulled me through this difficult time. I prayed every day;
  2. My Union stood by me all the way and they never let me give up;
  3. If anyone is in doubt about Local 100, my case should convince them to join the Union."

Local 100 Gets Aide's Job Back PDF Print E-mail

There is a good reason GCCSA Head Start teacher's aide Hortencia Dominguez has such a big smile on her face.Hortencia Dominguez

Hortencia's first day of work for GCCSA was August 20, 1991. She worked there for 19 years, but on April 12, 2010, she was terminated.

She had devoted her entire adult life to GCCSA, yet the agency fired her for leaving one student in the classroom while she took the rest of the children to the playground. The student was unattended for less then two minutes, yet that was long enough to disregard 19 years of good work.

As soon as she was terminated she called her Union, Local 100, and they filed a grievance demanding she be reinstated immediately. Her plea was disallowed at the Level II Hearing, but at the Level III Hearing with Dr. Reynolds, the decision  was made to put her back to work. THANK YOU Dr. Reynolds for listening to Hortencia and letting her stay at GCCSA.

Hortencia said after she found out that she got her job back, "When I was fired, I never thought I had a chance to get my job back, but the Union told me not to give up and keep fighting for justice. If you see me at my Center or at a GCCSA meeting you now know why I will have a big smile of my face, just like the one in my photo. If you are not a member of Local 100 you should join today because they will help you fight for fairness and justice in the workplace and with a strong Union each worker will have a voice and job security."

Being a Local 100 member made a big difference in her life. By joining Local 100, you can let the Local make a big difference in your life.

Standing with Hortencia are two Local 100 organizers, Erica and Laura. If you want to join Local 100, give them a call and they will come out to speak with you about all the good things Local 100 does.Hortencia Dominguez with Local 100 organizers Erica and Laura
