    Default Saginaw Social Service Workers Vote For Teamster Representation

    Saginaw Social Service Workers Vote For Teamster Representation

    "Recently, social service coordinators, case managers and counselor-aides at Bannum Place in Saginaw, Mich., voted for Teamster representation by Local 406. Bannum Place is a community home for people coming out of the federal prison system. The workers there assist with finding employment for the residents as well as monitoring them as they re-adjust to life outside of prison.

    “Our union prides itself on the diversity of the jobs we represent, and having the social service workers from Bannum Place as part of our Teamster family is a welcome addition,” said Greg Nowak, president of Teamsters Joint Council 43 in Detroit. “The employer put up a fight, hiring union busters and more – but this unit held strong.”

    Bannum Place workers, many of whom hold advanced degrees, reached out to the union as they wanted the improved wages, insurance and other benefits which are often standards in Teamster-negotiated collective bargaining agreements."

    My wife works in the social services field inside the NJ state prison system, employed by a private contractor.
    Talk about low wages and lousy benefits. Besides needing degrees in some jobs, but all needing state certified credentials and licensing.

    Bottom line, they can't find enough people to do these jobs. Many are former inmates that have decided to try the straight life and clean-up their drug and alcohol use.

    The state also has employees that do the same thing, better pay, better benefits and negotiated rules and working conditions.
