SEPTEMBER 21, 2017

UNIT 1 OHAP - H BODY SHOP UNEMPLOYMENT INFORMATION: You must file for unemployment online at or if you do not have internet access, call 1.877.644.6562. ODJFS business hours are 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM Monday – Friday, except holidays. Due to the minimal amount of people affected by this layoff, ODJFS will NOT issue a mass layoff number for H Body Shop next week. Your last day worked will be 09/22/2017 and your return to work date will be 10/02/17.

H BODY SHOP LAYOFF INSTRUCTIONS: On Sunday, September 24th, open or restart your claim. On Sunday, October 1st, file a claim for week ending Saturday, September 30th. You MUST visit the ODJFS web site two times or make two calls to them in order to get paid for your layoff weeks. If ever you go to claim your week and the correct week ending date is not listed, disconnect and call your processing center to file your claim. The number to your processing center can be found on your paperwork from the ODJFS.

Do not wait until the Saturday after your layoff week to make application for benefits because there is a chance that you may encounter a technical problem that could force you to file your application late. If you do not make application and file your claim correctly and within the ODJFS’s defined time period, they will not pay your benefit for the layoff week(s).

WAITING WEEK INFORMATION: Unit 1 OHAP members who were on layoff status and serving their waiting week will be denied unemployment. You must go to the ODJFS web site and print your unemployment benefit payment documents showing ZERO amount paid as well as the document under the “Claim Details” section, “View Claim Summary/Payment History” that shows “WW Served” as the most current status and take them to Human Resources to sign up for your SUB pay. Please see examples on reverse side of this bulletin. Signing up for SUB this time will start your auto SUB for one year in the event of future layoffs.

GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING: The next General Membership Meeting is Sunday, October 8th at 2:30 PM at UAW Local 2000, 3151 Abbe Road, Sheffield Village.
