The results are in: 97% have voted to give our bargaining team power to call for a strike. There is no doubt that Monterey County workers are ready to anything it takes to win a contract that invests in our community and the people like us who make this a great place to live, work, and raise a family.
Now that a strike has been overwhelmingly authorized, our bargaining team could call for a strike at a moment’s notice.
As a result of yesterday’s announcement, we heard from County management that they suddenly have new authority to make a deal. We hope management is serious about doing the right thing.
Now that a strike has been authorized, members can expect future updates and actions to be communicated via text, calls, and emails from our bargaining team and your designated worksite Strike Captain.
