Latest News

Since November, the Bargaining Committee has met three times to begin preparations for contract negotiations. The Committee has spent time reviewing what we won and did not win in the last contract negotiations in 2018, going over bargaining survey results so far and the priorities members want to see for the contract, evaluating problematic aspects of the current contract that need to be changed, and reviewing the District budget and other financial information relevant to negotiations. The Bargaining Committee will meet again on February 16. We will conduct meetings with members across the District before we finish proposals or start meeting with management. More info to come soon!

Join the Contract Action Team!

It will take more than sitting at the table to get what we need in our new contract – it will take organizing! That is why we are building a Contract Action Team to help plan actions, ensure members are informed about what is happening, and prepare us for what it takes to win the best contract we can get. We need to have at least one CAT member in each park. Are you interested in joining the CAT? Contact:
