Fresno County provided some specific proposals Tuesday in bargaining. Here are the details:
- Maintain the 9 percent pay cut with no additional salary cuts.
- Reduce the cap on annual leave to 400 hours, and reduce the accrual rate to 10 days a year for 0-5 years, 15 days a year for up to 10 years, and 20 days a year for more than 10 years of service.
- Change the step structure to 12 steps, and it would take more than twice as long to reach the top step.
Our bargaining team proposed unfreezing promotions, and the county said they’re willing to discuss that if we come to a total agreement.
The bargaining team is putting together our initial proposal, based on survey input from you. It’s not too late to submit your ideas for this member-driven process. Turn in a survey or fill one out online at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/fresnosurvey
Come to the Contract Action Meeting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, May 17 at the SEIU 521 office, 5228 E. Pine.
Our voices apart are just noise. Our voices together are a choir. Let’s put our voices together and win this contract campaign.
