Congratulations to the Local 509 members at Bridgewell who on Friday voted to ratify their first contract as members of the union!
When the votes were tallied, the result was beyond overwhelming: 364 yes, 4 no.
Members were overjoyed at the nearly unanimous support of the contract that their bargaining team had put together, and are looking forward to seeing the results of their hard work at the bargaining table. Among other gains, the new three year contract includes:
- Retroactive pay raises.
- A 2% bonus.
- A grievance and arbitration procedure with just cause for discipline and terminations
- and many more improvements
Congratulations again to the Bridgewell bargaining team for the great results from your hard work.
