Remembering an MCEA member

This is to morn our sorrow of a very strong member of MCEA Chapter 45, who is no longer with us.. From Chapter 45 - the Chapter that Rocks!

We love you and mourn the loss of a great sister and member of MCEA. These words are but a few from Chapter 45. Phyliss was a fighter who believed in fighting for what was right and the protection of all state employees. She made every chapter meeting, and never missed MCEA Statewide or MCEA conventions. These words are from your sisters and brothers of Chapter 45.

RNs at Springfield

Registered Nurses (RNs) employed by Springfield State Hospital Center were denied the use of paid leave on the weekend of January 22, 2016 due to their essential employee status. The employees leave status was charged to code 86, unpaid, unexcused absence. On February 5, 2016 the employees contacted their Labor Relations Specialist, Michael Keeney for guidance and assistance. Mr. Keeney filed instant grievances on behalf of the RNs to ensure that their time frames were protected.
