What is the SEIU-USWW Workshare Program? 

The SEIU-USWW Workshare Program is a program that your union negotiated with janitorial employers to save jobs during the COVID-19 crisis. Where building owners agree to implement the program, Workshare protects your job by allowing the employer to cut hours by no more than 30% at your worksite instead of laying off employees, provided your employer maintains your health benefits despite the reduction in hours. In addition, you may be eligible to receive a special type of unemployment benefit to help you make up the lost income.
