Return to Work?

August 26, 2020

While the ultimate goal is to return to campus, we are still in the meet and confer process of repopulating the campus. That being said, campus administration is adamant to have employees return to campus while the uncertainty of providing a safe environment remains. Therefore, please read the attached letter and proceed accordingly.

In Union,
Robert Yslas

Chapter Meetings May 2020 - July 2020

July 31, 2020

Given our inability to meet face to face, we decided that the next best thing would be to move our meeting to a virtual environment. This allows us to meet with you more often and include more employees, thereby allow more interaction via our chat feature. In order to reach even more employees, we have recorded our sessions to enable our information to reach a broad audience in order to quell misconceptions, rumor, and erroneous information. Please pass the word to your co-worker to check us out and, hopefully, we'll see you at our next meeting.

In Union,
Robert Yslas

SDSU Campus Safety Survey Chapter 318

July 10, 2020

We know a lot of employees are being asked to go back to the office and the repopulation plan is underway. Unfortunately, the campus has not met with Union Leadership to meet and confer over the repopulation plan yet, despite our objections and wish to delay re-populating the campus considering current COVID-19 numbers. We have a feeling that enough is not being done to keep those on campus now and those who are returning safe. So, we are reaching out to you to give us the data we need to be able to fight for you.

Here is the link to TAKE/PREVIEW the Survey

We look forward to your responses to the survey!

Temp Checks and Campus Re-population

June 15, 2020

Thank you to all those who joined us for our monthly Chapter Meeting on Friday. We had about 180 staff members join us online to get information about what is new on the campus. We recorded the session. If you would like the link please contact Chapter President Robert Yslas (robertyslasjr at gmail.com)

We met as part of the Labor Management Committee (LMC) Friday, June 12, 2020. As part of our discussion, and with the expectation of having Facilities Service returning to the campus and participating in temperature checks starting Monday, 6/15/20, if an employee manifests with a fever of 100.0 degrees at the time of reporting for work, said employee will be sent home and will receive paid administrative leave to 10 days. Additionally, management will offer and encourage staff members to have COVID-19 testing. Employees can call 211 to locate a testing site near their physical location to schedule an appointment. NOTE: SDSU, per Employee Relations, has agreed to these stipulations until the end of July or until we can finalize this issue at a meet and confer, whichever comes first.

Additionally, in keeping in line with the County of San Diego guidelines, and referencing any re-population of the campus, we are reminding staff that if you are 65 years old or older or you have a chronic illness, as it applied to the restrictions related to this pandemic, you are still strongly encouraged to remain at home. If you have any issues, you are asked to contact the Office of Employee Relations. Additionally, managers cannot ask for your medical condition nor can they request documentation of your condition per HEERA.

If you feel that managers are violating these conditions, please let us know as soon as possible and send us any documentation you have that discusses these issues.
