Slowly but surely, we are winning at the negotiations table. After some long bargaining sessions over the last two weeks, we can say with confidence that the annual leave takeaway is completely off the table.
Although management had agreed to table the issue earlier this month, they proposed a re-opener for our contract that would allow takeaway of our Annual Leave during the contract. Our bargaining team caught the sneaky way Management attempted to take away our Annual Leave and said NO. Management has now conceded to us.
Even though the county continues to stall on many issues, our persistence and solidarity is paying off. We’ve still got more work to do, but it’s clear that we are fighting the county’s short-sighted takeaways.
