LETTER TO THE SLC SCHOOL BOARD:
This is to let you know that we have reached a tentative agreement with the District Staff concerning the proposed privatization of Custodial Services. CWA will be bringing this tentative agreement to a vote this Saturday. The only reason we are bringing this to ratification is because your staff told us this was the only way they would agree to keep the Custodial Services in-house. So, you see, we had no other choice but to agree and bring it to the workers. Be advised that we were told by administration we had to ratify this proposal by the Board Meeting May 14th.
UPDATE: This is to advise you that CWA has reached a tentative agreement on a 3 year contract with Palm Beach County today. Details will be sent out soon. Tentatively, All CWA bargaining unit workers will receive a 3% ATB wage increase or .60 cents per hour ATB, whichever is graeter on October 1, 2013 once ratified by the Union and the County. It has also been agreed that there will be a wage reopener for 2014. It was agreed that in the 2014 reopened, there will be a wage increase, commensurate with increased County revenue. We have also reached agreements on changes to other articles of the Contract. Ratification notices will be mailed out soon.
