UNEMPLOYMENT INFORMATION: PLEASE READ THESE
INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND CALL THE UNION HALL OR HUMAN RESOURCES DEPARTMENT IF
YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. You must file for unemployment online at
http://unemployment.ohio.gov or call your processing center. If your week ending date is not available
online or via phone, call your processing center and ask a LIVE PERSON to file
it for you. ODJFS business hours
are 8:00 - 5:00 Monday through Friday, except holidays.
A CREW (DAY SHIFT): You will be laid off for ONE (1) WEEK using Mass Layoff # 1700756. Your last day worked will be 01/19/2018
(for unemployment purposes) and your
return to work date will be 01/29/2018.
You will call to file or file online a
total of TWO (2) times. YOU
WILL NOT REOPEN YOUR CLAIM ON 01/14/2018 BECAUSE YOU ARE BEING PAID SHORT WORK
WEEK FOR THE MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. HOLIDAY WEEK. On Sunday, 01/21/2018, you will
reopen or file an additional claim. On
Sunday, 01/28/2018, you will
claim week ending 01/27/2018.
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). Appeals
for failing to file timely are seldom won and we want to be sure everyone is
paid their due benefit. Full details and instructions from the ODJFS are
available in human resources and at the union hall. The ODJFS instructions will
also be posted on our website at www.uawlocal2000.org.
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. If you aren’t able to print your paystub
showing ZERO AMOUNT PAID, print ANYTHING from the ODJFS with your Social
Security number on it and use that instead. Signing up for SUB this time
will start your auto SUB for one year in the event of future layoffs.
Members on TLO who have exhausted their unemployment benefits must
do the following: 1) Once logged into the ODJFS web page, print the
MAIN PAGE, which states that “No weekly claims can currently be filed. You have
exhausted your total benefits payable.” 2) Go to the VIEW CLAIM SUMMARY/PAYMENT
SUMMARY PAGE and print that out. 3) Go to VIEW DETERMINATION NOTICES and print
out your last paystub. 4) Take all THREE
(3) pages to Labor Relations and you will be able to sign up for SUB pay.
The company has agreed to allow you to sign SUB cards for the remainder of the
month, so you won’t have to take the paperwork in every week. In other words,
you will only be required to bring this information once a month instead of
weekly. If you have any questions/concerns, please call President Bill Samples
at 440.934.3151, extension 1.
