CONGRATULATIONS ON RATIFICATION OF YOUR NEW THREE YEAR CONTRACT! A special thanks to the bargaining committee for all of their hard work and to the members for your support. NEW CONTRACTS, PAY INCREASES: One BIG change to the new contract is a change to when members receive their pay increases. Per the new contract ratified in December 2018, members will receive a 2.5% pay increase each year in October. In December 2018, you should have received a pay increase and retro pay for the increase retroactive to October 2018. You will receive an additional 2.5% increase in October 2019, and an additional 2.5% increase in October 2020. There are no longer step increases. Monthly Labor Management Meetings continue, if you have an issue that is not a grievance please reach out to a shop steward so that we can place it on the agenda for the next meeting.
