Market Adjustment Bargaining Update and Implementation Examples

By President / On / In Local 88

Good morning. I wanted to pass along a brief update regarding the market adjustment bargaining agreement.

Wednesday May 18, Local 88 membership overwhelmingly voted to ratify the agreement. Yesterday morning, the Multnomah Board of Commissioners also formally ratified the agreement.

With these procedural hurdles cleared, those impacted should expect retroactive pay to be included in your paycheck before the completion of the fiscal year. As we are paid in arrears, It is most likely that the retro pay will be on your 7/15 check, but it is possible that it could appear as early as the 6/30 paycheck.
