Voluntary staff reduction deadline approaching

The deadline for CEA members to submit their request for a voluntary staff reduction from Human Resources (HR) based on “Philosophical or Health and Safety Concerns ” is 5 p.m. on Friday, January 12.

You can submit your written request by:

  1. Submitting a signed, hard-copy written request to: Rick Bailey, Human Resources, 270 E. State Street, Columbus, OH 43215. This is the preferred method and your Association strongly suggests you hand deliver your letter and obtain a time-stamped copy for your records.
  2. You can also email your request using your CCS email to: article211@columbus.k12.oh.us. Include in the subject line “Voluntary Staff Reduction Request” followed by your first and last name and employee ID number.

Members who submit a request by January 12, 2018 will be notified by HR later in January of their decision. Submitting a request does not mean it will be automatically granted. No requests will be considered after the deadline.
