We are pleased to report that the Coalition of King County Unions has negotiated a tentative agreement with the County that includes cost-of-living increases for all impacted County employees in 2015 and 2016. Your Union's General Counsel Spencer Thal was one of the lead negotiators for the Coalition.
The agreement also includes a flat lump sum bonus of $500 per employee payable to Coalition bargaining unit members only on or before December 31, 2014.
This agreement is fully recommended by the Union's negotiations team. You can access a detailed summary document that outlines the changes here.
Each bargaining unit will have an opportunity to vote on the agreement before August 14. We will be holding informational meetings in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned for times and locations.
