Local 2734 Needs Rally Support! (In Tillamook)

By admin / On / In Building the Union, Local 88, Political Action

Please join us for a fair contract rally in support of our Tillamook County AFSCME Brothers and Sisters on Friday October 16th at 5:30 on the corner of 1st and Highway 101-RIGHT OUTSIDE THE COURTHOUSE in Tillamook.

AFSCME Local 2734 (Tillamook County) has been working without a contract since January 1, 2015.  The County declared impasse on October 5 and we are now in our 30 day cooling off period.

We fully expect the County to implement their final offer at the end of the 30 days.

The Local has agreed to no wage increases for 2 years in order to keep their current health insurance plan.  The County wants them to move to a plan with significantly higher co-pays and deductibles-meaning more out of pocket for many folks. This employer has a lot of folks afraid of retaliation and we can use some morale boosts and solidarity building for our members over here.

So come join us if you can.
