San Leandro Chapter Approves New Three Year Contract

On September 6th the San Leandro Chapter approved a multi-year contract running from January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2015.  Under the terms of the new agreement members will now contribute 8% towards their pension which will be offset by a 10% wage increase over the three year term.  The City will also provide a 2.5% salary increase to four classifications at the Water Pollution Control Plant (Supervisor, Lead Operation, Operator I/II and Operator-in-Training) in order to bring their compensation packages closer in-line with the Bay Area labor market.  Moreover, the City has agreed to complete further market adjustment studies for seven Local 21 represented classifications and will meet and confer on its findings within 90 days of adoption of the contract.  Congratulations to the San Leandro bargaining team, contract action team, and membership!
