Win of the Week! September 9-15

SEIU-West is thrilled to announce our newest bargaining unit, the Town of Herbert, has ratified their first collective agreement with 100% turnout and 100% support! In an environment where employers and government continue to push rollbacks, SEIU-West successfully bargained general wage increases of 2% the first two years, and 1.5% in the third year. Some other highlights include:

  • standby and call back language,
  • the ability to bank overtime at time and a half
  • better than vacation entitlements
  • $200 for approved foot ware

It is clear that when we work together, we are Stronger Together! Congratulations to the entire Herbert team!
