|Brothers and Sisters,
Contract ballots will arrive in the mail this week for us to ratify the Tentative Agreement for Bargaining Units 601-602. Make no mistake, this is the contract we have earned many times over during the last three years of service. Your Union fought hard to ensure that the sacrifices you and your families made during COVID and continue to make each day are not forgotten and are valued as they should be valued.
We left no money on the table. Your Executive Board unanimously recommends the membership support and “YES” vote to ratify this Tentative Agreement. Thank you for your support.
Please mark your ballot and mail back ASAP to expedite the Board of Supervisors ratification vote and get these raises into our pockets.
Your Local 1014 Executive Board and Bargaining Team worked tirelessly to get all monies from the table into our pockets. This is in addition to the rich Fringe Benefits Contract we also secured this year and numerous improvements and increases to benefits like Comp Time, Fit For Life, and V Days.
