WELCOME to the official Website of
The DETROIT ORGANIZATION of
Preserve. Protect. Peace.
What do these words mean to you? In a union these words mean everything. We preserve your way of life by working to create the best contracts that support all of the hard work you put in daily. Unions protect when employees are under attack. Unions provide peace. The peace of mind knowing that someone is looking out for you while you work instead of looking over your shoulder while you work. Unions provide something very important to your daily professional life and career but it cannot function without your support.

By popular request. On Friday, the tab for pay on payday will go live. You now have the option of having your dues collected monthly or on payday. If you are currently paying monthly and want to switch send me an email so we can make sure you don't overpay.
Jennifer Whitted's name appeared on the new sign-up OSAS members. This was an error. Jennifer has been a dues paying member since she entered OSAS. She is a loyal Supporter.

It was brought to my attention that some of the employees who are in the Union under a job code but not a dues paying Member believe they have the same privileges. Let me clear up what Right to Work means. You may hold a position in a Union without paying dues and you do receive Union representation in a discipline case or in a contract violation. This is all you get. If it is not a contract violation or you have received a Written Warning and want Union representation there is not need for you to call the Union for anything else.
Grievances can only be filed if there is a contract violation. The contract can be found under the Member Only tab. As Union President I do so much more for Members unrelated to contract violations. I have gotten and will get new wage determinations. I have helped Members with evaluations. I have solved many problems with a Member and their Superior. I have worked with upper management for change of hours. I have assisted in FMLAs, placement changes, location changes, confirming information, assistance in payroll audits, answering all their questions or finding out who can.
Members have access to the Member Only tab. They can attend meetings, vote and run for office.
I want to inform Members that at contract negotiations I will be asking for new wage determinations. So if you are paying dues and want a new wage determination please send me your resume and a short summary on why you believe you should receive more money. This is only open to Members. The definition of a Member is one who is paying dues.
My hope is that everyone becomes a Member. I will be releasing the name of employees working under an OSAS job code who are not Members. The list will be located in the Member Only tab. You may have a peer sitting right next to you that is not a Member. As a Member you can assist the Union in explaining how important it is to belong. You can measure your success by watching the home page for updates with new Member's name.
