Fellow CWA Members,
Your Union is pleased to announce that the City and CWA Local4502 have reached an agreement in principle on a proposed new contract for bargaining unit members. The agreement in principle was reached very late on December 30. The next step in the process is for negotiators to finalize the proposed contract language. That process is underway. After the proposed language is finalized, the Union will submit the proposed contract to the membership for a ratification vote on whether to accept or reject the proposed contract.
The agreement in principle includes increases in compensation, no erosion of your insurance benefits, and improvements to your working conditions. Your Union’s hard work and your strong support for your Union and your co-workers paid off. We look forward to sharing the details of the proposed contract when the language is finalized.
Your Union plans to conduct a contract ratification vote in January 2021. We will provide you with dates and information about the voting process in the near future. The Union will also conduct WebEX contract meetings to explain the proposed contract and answer your questions.
Our members faced many challenges on and off the job in 2020. CWA Local 4502 thanks you for your hard work and service to the City and residents. We know that having a new contract in place will benefit every employee we represent, as well as their family members, as we face the challenges that lie ahead. Happy New Year.
Don’t hesitate to contact your Union if you have questions.
