2021 Contract Bargaining Begins

We officially kicked off our 2021 CAPE Contract Negotiations. Our bargaining team members met with County Management via Zoom, set parameters and ground rules for negotiations, and presented and reviewed our initial Unit proposals for a new one-year contract.

Over the last year, we have witnessed just how vital it is to have a strong union contract. We’re committed to protecting our wages, benefits, and working conditions as we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even more, we’re working to strengthen our new contract with proposals that include:

  • Long-term telework, even after COVID-19 pandemic restrictions are lifted;
  • Pandemic Work Bonus: and
  • Sick Leave Buy Back

Remember, our bargaining team is only as strong as the members in the workplace.  In order to build the strength we will need to secure a fair contract, it’s important we all stay updated, involved and active in our contract campaign.
