Oakland Bargaining Bulletin #10



From the Bargaining Table:

The City has moved from their 0% COLAs and we now have hard numbers on the table… but not great numbers, which is still a disappointment for our bargaining team members.

Your Paid Family Leave Questions Answered!

As discussed at membership meetings, our Bargaining Teams in the past have always voted to maintain short and long term disability benefits through a private insurer (The Hartford, currently) because there is a seamless transition between short and long term disability, if needed by our members. Our insurance provides income replacement up to the age of 70.

Oakland Bargaining Bulletin #7



Highlights of the TA’s we have signed off on so far:

•    Paid 30 minutes of Union Orientation for new hires within 30 days so we can build Union Power as new employees join Local 21.

•    Codified Labor Management language in the MOU for OPD (it was a side letter before) and Local 21 exclusive Labor Management (we had mandatory LMM in the past MOU).
