    Contract Ratification Update
    March 30, 2017
    Dear Sisters and Brothers: 
    We are proud to announce that we have reached a tentative agreement with the County which will yield economic growth for all members.
    This agreement is for a two-year term and includes:
    • Wage increases for all members
    • An additional longevity increment for eligible members at top of grade
    • Classification studies
    • Increases in tool and shoe allowances
    • Increases in tuition assistance
    • Free access to County recreation and aquatic facilities
    • Additional progress in narrowing the gap between our sworn public safety personnel and police and fire.
    The agreement is tentative until it is ratified by the membership and approved by County Council. 
    Please note that the appendices and side letters are specific to particular departments or divisions. 
    Due to the complexity of this agreement and the need to have a candid internal conversation regarding the challenges that lie ahead, we have suspended mail balloting. We encourage everyone to attend one of the 10 meetings scheduled throughout the County where the union will be available to answer any questions on the tentative agreement.
    You will be given two (2) hours of administrative leave to attend a ratification meeting. Administrative leave forms will be provided at the conclusion of the meetings.
    This is your Union and your contract; make sure that your voice is heard.
    The meeting/polling schedule can be found below. Members may also vote during office hours at the union office from Monday, April 10th through Friday, April 14th. 
    I would like to extend a special thanks to the members of the bargaining team for their dedication, and tireless advocacy on behalf of the entire Montgomery County bargaining unit:
    Beverley Bierman, Brenda Hartwig, Carlos Taylor, Edward Trever, Cassandra Harper, Conor Toole , Erik Perry, Gilberto Zelaya, Jeffrey Noel-Nosbaum, John Smoak, Jose Rivera, Linda Foley, Maynard Thorn , Mike Trigiani , Nancy Austin , Navette Blades, Nickolas Knowlton, Patricia Mitchell, Robert Lehman, Thomas Coulter, Thomas Soileau, and Tonette Leary.
    You have our commitment to continue to fight for progress in all areas of your employment. We look forward to seeing you at a meeting and appreciate your participation. Your vote is your voice.
    In Solidarity,
    Gino Renne,
    President
