Ask a Question About Medical and Dental Benefits
I have been asked go to another department by my new manager. Is there a possibility that management could be asked to guarantee that I will not be subjected to the 6 month or 3 month probation time period again? This is somewhat time sensitive.Thanks! She has asked me to talk with my co-worker, who is our CDRC HR Associate.
If I started my job on 6/15/2015, should that mean that my 6 month probationary period is over by today? If so, why am I still unable to apply for other jobs at OHSU? It keeps saying I cannot apply in my probationary period. Thanks.
I have a question regarding classification. Could I set up a time to speak with someone in person or over the phone?
I am not sure if I should file a grievance for this - I was told that I would be working towards becoming a junior buyer on my review and now he is giving that to someone else....should I file?
If i bid on a job, do I have to accept it? Can my manager make me accept it?
I already accepted a new possition in Angio as a PAS Resourse and signed an offer letter stating that my start date is 4/16/2014. My current manager at IRU just told me he isn't letting me go for another 2 weeks. That's 2 MORE weeks at a PAS's hourly wage. It's already been a month since I accepted the job. Is there anything I can do? I took the job for a reason and have had NO say in when I start. Now it's messing with my livelyhood.
Can you apply for another position if you are in your probationary period after a job change?
I am planning to attend pharmacy school starting in August, and this will preclude me from keeping my 1.0 FTE position and I am planning to request relief status at that point from my dept. Right now there is a position open which I would be interested in bidding for, and if awarded I would be near the end of my six month job change probation period. Does that pose any problems with then requesting relief status/changing jobs from the new FTE Position later on down the line?
I am currently a PAS Specialist, transfering to an Administraive Coordinator position within our clinic, and I began training. Should I be getting a higher level of pay during this training time? Does this guarantee me the position?
I read that when you do a voluntary demotion that you are unable to job bid in your department for 6 months. Does that 6 months start on your first day in the new department or when you accepted the job/were hired?
I am curious of what continued representation I would have from the union if I change my status from hourly pay to salary
If I would make a lateral transfer to an open position in my department, would I have to serve a six month probationary period?
If i change jobs am I subject to another drug test or background check?
Regarding last question asked: I work In radiology as a X-ray tech. They are saying I'm officially 1.0 FTE. I should be getting paid overtime if I work more then 8 hrs a day unless I sign a overtime waiver, is this correct?
Is there a way to verify when a promotion has occured. The reason I ask is I recently found out about a promotion in my department that I would have liked to bid on, my manager responded that the job biding occured before I even worked here. Yet I remember the employee that got the promotion as having a lesser job when I started working here.
I am applying for a lateral move as a grants and contracts coordinator. If I have the most seniority, most experience but my pay is at the top of the scale, can the job go to someone with less seniority and experience to avoid paying me the top level. What are the union rules for hiring.
What is the process for changing shifts from evenings to days with regards to senority over another candidate???
I will be cut to .6FTE starting August 31. How do I get my dues pro-rated?
I am a .4 employee that is constantly working at a .5 or higher FTE. I asked my supervisor if they could move me up to a .5 so I could get insurance, and they said no. Is there anything in the union contract that requires them to give me benefits if I consistently work at a .5 FTE over a certain period?
How is "job bid" defined? How is "senior bidding employee" defined? I need some clarification on 15.2. My understanding is that a vacant position will be given to the senior employee within a work unit if the vacant position is within the same classification. Does that mean that the position would be offered to the next senior person within the same class if the most senior person does not take the position? Any clarification you can provide would be very helpful. Thanks.
I'm working as an Adminstrative Assistant and I think I should be classified as an Administrative Coordinator. What's the process for getting reclassified?
So many jobs at OHSU require experience. How can I get experience if I can't get a job?
I am told that any OHSU AFSCME employee can transfer into another dept (if they are qualified) and resume their seniority in the new dept. This is NOT fair to those employees who are already in the dept and have worked a long time to be able to "bid" on shifts. This is done by employee seniority. I believe the newly transferred employee should maintain their OHSU seniority but coming into a whole new dept and "bumping" others who have worked the job longer is not right.
