Notice to all CDCS and CSG Workers

December 13, 2016

Workers who provide Consumer Directed Community Supports (CDCS), Consumer Support Grant (CSG) and Personal Care Assistance (PCA) Choice programs are exclusively represented by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). The terms and conditions of their employment are governed by labor agreement in effect from July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2017.

The Bureau of Mediation Services (BMS) has received a petition requesting decertification of SEIU as the exclusive representative of those workers. Until that issue is resolved, BMS has issued two orders that PCA Choice agencies and Fiscal Support Entities must comply: BMS Order – Decertification Unit Determination and BMS Order – Maintenance of Status Quo.

Please review the following BMS Orders:
