WE ARE STILL HERE FOR YOU
Local President's Message
Welcome to the AFGE Local 3937 Website! We are in interesting times due to the Executive Orders signed by President Trump in May, that took effect throughout Social Security on July 9th 2018. You may notice that your work emails, calls or IMs to your local rep or Executive Board are not going through - we are not ignoring you by choice, but because the Administration has prohibited us from using SSA-provided computers, emails, phones/voicemail, office space, cabinets etc while we are on-site and on duty time. The Union hours that we can access to represent you at work have been drastically cut and the reasons we may request this type of time are few.
We still represent you, and the Contract provisions are still in effect. Following are the ways you can reach us for help and guidance. Please be sure to detail your issue or question, and give us a *personal* email and phone number, since we will not be able to contact you at work. Your Local will monitor and respond to your emails and calls on our personal time on lunch break and evenings, to ensure that you are heard.
Cell: (206) 519-7630 (calls screened and returned within 1-2 days)
If you are not a member, now is the time to join. If you ARE a member, log in or register at the left, so that you can learn more about how to handle some things on your own if we cannot be there with you immediately: access How-To guides for filing grievances, tips on handling an investigatory or disciplinary meeting, and a searchable link to your Contract.
Local Business Meeting
To All Members:
AFGE Local 3937 will notify members of the time and place of the next scheduled Local Business Meeting.
When meetings are held at the ATSC, remember that It is a secure building so remember to have your PIV card and check in with the guard at the front entrance, then come on through to our conference room.
What: All AFGE members are encouraged to attend and participate our meetings, and to bring any topics to the floor for discussion with your Local officers.
We look forward to seeing you there!PausedPaused
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.
