Bargaining Agreement with Blue Collar Employees Approved

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

The Legislature, without dissent, approved a three-year Tentative Bargaining Agreement between the County and the Civil Service Employees Association Local 1000, Blue Collar Unit, which covers the County’s Blue Collar employees.  The new three-year contract, which runs from January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2017, in part will provide annual salary increases of 2.25% for each of the three years.  The contract, which was ratified by union membership March 30, represents the first contract agreement reached between the County and its employee unions.

Budget Chair Jim Dennis, who served on the County’s negotiating team praised the union’s team for their work at the bargaining table, and characterized the agreement as beneficial for both the union and the County.
