We represent nearly 34 workers at City of East Palo Alto.
Oct. 26, 2017
Our City of East Palo Alto members recently ratified a tentative agreement and celebrated a contract win on Oct. 17, 2017. The bargaining team in conjunction with the full membership fought long and hard to achieve historic new benefits and salary increases.
“This is an example of what great teamwork and persistence can accomplish. The City of East Palo Alto is often the forgotten city within the greater Silicon Valley, but this time we stood strong together. Our former chief negotiating member, the late Jim Woods, was an inspiration when we started the long journey of negotiations. Realizing now the power that we have, our members are already gearing up for the next round of bargaining in two years.”
-Janet Nuñez, Bargaining Team Member
The agreement will now go to the City Council for final signature on Nov. 9, 2017.
