    When eight WFSE members at Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) realized they were being asked to do work beyond their job class without a pay increase, they joined forces to make things right.

    They organized to win back pay—and planted seeds for a stronger union in their workplace.

    Bethany Plunkett

    Bethany Plunkett, a WFSE member and steward, is a social service specialist 3 (SSS3) at DCYF. She connects families with public services and works to keep kids safe.

    “It’s lots of conversations with families about their life and what’s going well, what they’re struggling with, and what we can do to help,” she said.

    For Plunkett, public service and union membership are ways to have a positive impact in others’ lives.

    When she was approached by an administrator and asked to help mentor new coworkers, Plunkett said yes, but something didn’t sit right.

    Plunkett had been asked to fulfill the functions of a social service specialist 4, or SSS4, without increasing her salary to the appropriate level.

    DCYF employees successfully advocated for the creation of the SSS4 role several years ago to designate positions for training and mentoring new staff.

    “When you are trying to go out with new workers all the time on top of your caseload, it can be really overwhelming,” said Jeanette Obelcz, a DCYF supervisor, member of the new WFSE Local 889, and MAT mentor.

    In practice, the SSS4 hadn’t been implemented. Because it was assigned a higher salary, hiring SSS4s would mean less budget available for roles that carry a full caseload.

    “We think the positions are super valuable and they still aren’t being used,” said Plunkett.

    Plunkett shared her story of being asked to work outside her job classification at a WFSE Social Services Policy Committee meeting.

    Within a few weeks, WFSE members in seven other units had received similar instructions to work as SSS4s without pay increases.

    Tabitha Culp was among those asked to take on training and other duties without an official promotion or pay increase.
