Frontline Worker Pay Ratified!

Last week all four Local 88 Multco bargaining units (Physicians, Dentists, JCSS, and the General Unit) overwhelmingly ratified our tentative agreement on frontline worker pandemic pay!  The County still intends to pay out pandemic pay on December 15th and we’ll inform you if that changes.  Our Union and County Labor Relations are comparing lists of eligible employees and hope to be able to provide a more definitive list of employees that will receive frontline worker pay incentive. We hope that by early next week we’ll be able to provide a list of all eligible staff.

General Unit Bargaining Survey:

If you are a member of the general unit and haven’t already, we encourage you to fill out our bargaining survey.  Please complete the survey by Wednesday, November 24th.
