We have made progress negotiating our first contract as Teamsters. We have reached Tentative Agreements on 22 contract articles, including Performance Evaluations, Dismissals, Bargaining Unit work, Respect/Fair treatment and Contracting Out.
PROPOSED PAY STEPS
On June 23, our Bargaining Team submitted our Union wage proposal. We proposed that the 15-step structure be reduced to the top six steps and all Skilled Trades workers should be moved to at least the current Step 10.
PROPOSED ACROSS-THE-BOARD RAISES
Our Union team has proposed 7% raises for all Skilled Trades workers across-the-board for each year of the 4-year contract. Management has not countered on the wage proposal.
We meet again with management on August 24. If you would like to have input in this contract, become a member by contacting a Bargaining Team member or Union Rep Jose Fuentes or Union Rep Dale Crane.
