      Want to be Happy? Join a Union.

      Fewer and fewer Americans belong to a union. Membership is down to a historic low of 11.2 percent of the work force, and only 6.7 percent of workers in the private sector. And if the nation’s confidence in the institution is any measure, not many people are mourning its diminishment. According to a Gallup poll, organized labor inspires less confidence than banks.

      A Secret Plan to Close Social Security's Offices and Outsource Its Work

      For months there have been rumors that the Social Security Administration has a "secret plan" to close all of its field offices. Is it true? A little-known report commissioned by the SSA at the request of Congress seems to hold the answer.

      Reasonable Accomodation

      Ergonomic Chairs

      Special chairs can be ordered through the Regional Office if you need one because of medical issues. If you require one as a result of a medical condition the request is supported by a physician's statement on a "Request for Special Needs" form. Special Needs ergonomic chairs are usually related to your stature. If you weigh in excess of 300 lbs. or are over 6 feet tall, or are under 4'11" or weigh less than 100 lbs. you do not need a physician statement.

      Ask your manager for the special needs form. Once the form is received, the manager should fill out an SSA 393 and send it to Regional Office. They should then send it to Baltimore. If no appropriate chair is available from the Division of Furniture Support (DFS) you can contact the Office of Civil Rights and Equal Opportunity (OCREO) and file a request for reasonable accomodation.
