Sisters and Brothers,
The following is an update on the current status of our contract negotiations.
The wage reopener negotiations are a top priority. We are meeting with the city twice per week to reach an agreement that will address the financial impact of the pay raise deferment agreed to by the membership. The full contract negotiations will begin this summer, so please take the time now to send me any proposals.
We are still negotiating your successor agreement and we are fully aware of how long this process has taken. We ask for your continued patience so that we can bring you a contract that is worthy of your vote.
We are gearing up to resume contract negotiations with the county. Employee representatives have been selected. I will keep you updated as things progress.
For further information, please attend our monthly Unit 14 meeting which takes place on the fourth Thursday of every month at 5 p.m.
