Alameda County Bargaining Update
March 6, 2019


Members Make the Case for Salary Adjustments

Members representing 33 classifications made Salary Adjustment presentations to the County to demonstrate the need for salary adjustments.

This is the largest number of presentations for salary adjustments in any contract year. While there is no guarantee any classification that presented will receive a salary adjustment, the presentations created an opportunity for consideration by the County for salary adjustments if a contract extension agreement is reached and ratified.

Update on Contract Extension Talks

On February 28th your Bargaining Team met with County negotiators and presented a counter-proposal that included everything except wages. The next session with management to discuss extending the contract is on March 7th. The County has confirmed that they will present a counter-proposal that includes wages. 

Management has expressed an interest in agreeing to a three-year contract extension. Your Bargaining Team has told management that we are interested in exploring a three-year extension if the wages are sufficient.
