The new red book (union contract) has been printed and we are beginning distribution! We appreciate your patience while the formatting and printing process was completed. This contract includes a number of important victories including:
- Higher across the board (COLA increases than in years past including a 3.6% increase this last July 1st
- Two saved holidays for essential employees
- More inclusive definition of family for bereavement and sick leave usage
- Improved contract language regarding alternative work schedules and telework agreements
- Cultural competency differential and better bilingual differential language.
Securing this contract took courage, determination, and unity – we all shared a role in this success!
Local 88 Stewards will begin distributing contracts at worksites around the County over the next few weeks AND we will also have contracts available at a number of locations throughout the County where we will also have snacks and light refreshments in celebration; all members are welcome to attend. Below is a list of contract distribution locations with dates and times. Please note that you will need to either be on your break or lunch break if you would like to attend one of the contract distribution gatherings. In order to make sure that we have a sufficient number of snacks and contracts please RSVP.
If you are unable to attend one of these gatherings, please contact a Local 88 steward in your unit to request a red book.
Staff representative, stewards, and bargaining team members will be distributing the contracts. Therefore, if you have any questions regarding the contract, they should be able to answer your questions.
