New Three-Year Contract Approved with White Collar Employees

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

The Legislature, by unanimous vote (Legislator Glenn Morey was excused), ratified a new three-year bargaining agreement with the County’s White Collar employees, Civil Service Employees Association, the County’s largest employee union. The agreement, retroactive to January 1, which runs through the end of 2020, increases base pay by 2% each year, and also increases annual employee Longevity payments—providing, in part, an annual Longevity payment of $500 for employees with at least five years of service, beginning in 2019. Longevity payments for employees who have completed ten or more years of service are also increased under the contract. Members of the employee union have already ratified the agreement. By policy of the Legislature, the County’s Confidential employees are also covered under provisions of the White Collar agreement.

Budget, Capital and Personnel Committee Chair Michael Lane praised the bargaining committees, for both management and labor, for their hard work which produced the agreement.

In a separate action, the Legislature, also without dissent, established salary and benefit adjustments for County Management employees in line with provisions negotiated by the CSEA White Collar unit, retroactive to January 1 of this year.
