2018 – 2021 Contract Negotiations
On Wednesday, August 7, 2019, your President, Jim Schoengarth and your Bargaining Chair, Danny Ramirez signed off on our contract with the County of Los Angeles. This ballot is your opportunity to affirm the final product as bargained for by your current Executive Board. The highlights of our bargaining included fighting the efforts of our Chief Probation Officer on take-aways that they insisted they must have taken out of our contract. At the end of the day we have retained our seniority rights, transfer rights, and have only agreed to continue discussion on the 56-hour shifts in a joint labor management discussion that will include Local 685 at the table.
While most of our contract remains unchanged, you will see the following items coming to you:
10.75 % raise over the term of the contract
2% as of March 1, 2019 (retro)
2.5% as of July 1, 2019 (retro)
