Together, we stood UNITED to FIGHT and WIN a fair contract! This agreement is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of your bargaining team and all of our members who rallied, spoke at the board of supervisors, petitioned and showed visible support for their union and for a strong contract. This contract prioritizes frontline workers and ensures that Monterey County workers are recognized for the valuable services you provide. This is a powerful contract for working families in Monterey county and we will continue fighting for issues at worksites together.
Winning a fair contract is only half the fight. The other half is holding management accountable & making sure they live up to their promises – that’s where our Union Stewards come in. Click here to attend a Steward Training and learn about other ways you can get involved.
