CAPE Members in All Six County Units Vote Overwhelmingly to Ratify Salary Contracts

CAPE members in all six county units voted overwhelmingly to ratify the salary contract agreements approved by bargaining unit representatives earlier this year. The results of the ratification votes will be reported next to County representatives, triggering an approval vote by the County Board of Supervisors at an upcoming meeting.

The three-year salary contract agreement includes an overall 7% pay increase, as well as bonuses and special pay practices for many CAPE-represented job categories.  The package also included a first ever CAPE Delegate Pilot Program that will facilitate member organizing and internal communications for the next contract negotiations cycle.

The pay package includes three pay raises:  2% retroactive to January or March, depending on the Unit; 2.5% on October 1, 2019, for all Units; and 2.5% on October 1, 2020, for all Units.

Additionally, qualifying members in all six CAPE units will receive additional pay as a result of bonuses from licensing, registration and certifications as detailed in the ratification materials.
