County attempts to delay promised retention bonus

Our newest Local 88 contract clearly states that all employees covered will receive a $2000 retention bonus July 1, 2023. Despite this contract being fully signed and executed, the implementation of the contract is a process done in good faith. When our union was notified that the bonuses would appear in our July 31, 2023 paychecks, a clear contract violation, we filed a step 3 grievance. The grievance process is moving forward and we expect the county to keep its word and pay employees as promised July 1, 2023.
