As you know, King County implemented a Paid Parental Leave pilot program effective January 1, 2016.

Teamsters 117 bargaining units throughout the County will be voting on the policy since it affects the leave provisions in your collective bargaining agreement.

Ballots were mailed to your home address on Thursday, January 21 and must be received in the locked Local 117 drop box by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 29 at one of the following locations:

  • King County Admin Building (3rd Fl)
  • Renton Roads
  • Regional Justice Center

Voting instructions and a contact person for each location are available on your ballot. If you have not received your ballot by Tuesday, January 26, please call me at 206-441-4860 ext. 1232.

I also wanted to let you know that King County Total Compensation Bargaining took place here at the Teamsters Union hall on January 20. An update on bargaining will be available on our website by the end of next week.

Thank you!
