Thanks to all you amazing Frontline Workers!
By now you have hopefully received your $1500 bonus. This sign of appreciation from the county to the 2000+ union represented employees who continued their excellent in person work throughout some or all of the pandemic is both small and late in coming. Past President Percy Winters, Jr spent countless hours talking with impacted workers and working with Chair Kafoury to win this bonus. Also important, Percy successfully retained our right to bargain in 2022. The Chair had requested that if we accepted the Frontline Workers bonus that we would forgo bargaining for another year (we had already done this in 2020). Appreciation comes in many forms, a bonus, kind words from coworkers and in this recent video which was featured in the 12/8/21 issue of the Wednesday Wire.
