Statewide Emergency Pay Grievance Update: June 29th, 2021

June 2021 Update

The statewide pay grievance continues to go forward this week after extensive delays being processed by the Office of Administrative Hearings. This month we received motions to dismiss our grievances from the state and we are working on our response to these motions. The state is pretending that all state offices and buildings were fully open the entire time of the pandemic.

We know that isn’t true and we have the photos, emails, notices, and policies that prove it. The lead grievants are gathering documentation for our legal team but please if you have pictures, emails, policies, etc. that show that your worksite was closed or had dramatically changed how they operate due to the pandemic, please get that evidence and information to the lead grievant from your agency or email it to us at [email protected].

Our response to these motions is due Monday, July 12th. In August the judge will convene a hearing on the current Motions to see if the case will move forward. We will keep you in the loop as we fight for what you earned during this state of emergency!
