Local 117 Secretary-Treasurer John Scearcy signs our DOC 2017-2019 collective bargaining agreement.
Yesterday, in a ceremony in Olympia, the Governor and our union's Secretary-Treasurer, John Scearcy, signed our 2017-2019 DOC collective bargaining agreement.
Our new contract is now available for you on our union's website here.
In the agreement, our bargaining committee achieved general wage increases of at least 10.5% over the coming biennium for all DOC Teamsters and we achieved interest arbitration rights.
I encourage you to familiarize yourself with your contract. It provides important information about your rights, protections, guaranteed wages, and working conditions as a Teamster at the DOC.
Thank you to our outstanding bargaining committee who worked long hours to make this important achievement possible. And congratulations to all of our members who stood together and spoke out for safety, family wages, and better working conditions.
This victory is yours.
