BU 17 – Health Facilities Evaluator Nurses
Weekly Update: Friday, July 24, 2020


Our next meeting with management regarding the infection control notice & new duty statement will be on Tuesday, August 4th, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. 

We have requested that HFENs from the previous meeting—Andres Villatoro, Nicola Callahan, and Felicia Barbato—be placed on state release time to attend the meeting. Unfortunately, management has not agreed to allow all other HFENs to listen in to the meeting.

We have not received answers regarding the outstanding questions from the meeting on July 9th.

We have received several emails with legal concerns about the revised duty statement, and we are in the process of doing legal research around those.

We will also be submitting additional questions to management.

If there is time, we will also address the notice regarding COVID testing or schedule another date to address that notice. Please let us know if you have questions or concerns. 

Please let us know if you have questions or concerns by emailing us at unit17@seiu1000.org
