Sisters and Brothers,
The following are the current updates for contract negotiations.
Negotiations for successor MOU 2 and MOU 13 agreements have begun. We have met with our City Coalition bargaining partners and the City negotiation team. Please attend the next Unit 14 meeting for the latest details. Negotiations for a successor MOU 35 Hiring Hall agreement are progressing. The City has our latest proposal.
We continue to negotiate a successor to our Unit E agreement. The Building Trades held an in-person meeting with our labor side bargaining team to explain how the implementation of a new retiree health plan is delaying progress but could ultimately provide us with the leverage we need to achieve the gains we desire. Continued patience is the key.
MOU 411 and 412 negotiations are ongoing and progressing slowly. The Unions United campaign was effective, and we are confident that we will get a wage package worthy of accepting. We are also currently negotiating a successor to the benefits agreement along with our partners at the Coalition of County Unions. Updates to follow.
For further information, please attend our monthly Unit 14 meeting which takes place on the fourth Thursday of every month at 5 p.m. Additionally, please feel free to contact me.
