August Meeting Schedule
Results of Vote on WTD Contract
The results of the vote on WTD contract today (7/28/04) resulted in support of the proposed contract by a vote of 156 for, 23 no, 1 abstention. There were six ballots that were disqualified because there was either no name on the envelope or no signature on the back of the envelope. Additionally a couple of ballots were turned in after the time for voting had passed and were not counted.
The next step is to notify King County Human Resources. The contract will undergo some internal routing and make its way to the County Council's Labor, Operations and Technology Committee for their review and approval. The earliest this would happen is August 24, followed by Council and County Executive approval. We anticipate checks sometime in October.
Thanks to members of the WTD Negotiating Committee for all of their hard work and donated time.
(Team: Roger Browne, Ken Madden; Dave Crippen; Kim Kingsbury; Adé Franklin; and alternates Wyatt Wood, Dan Sturgill, Duc Dang, Bob Swarner, Shahrzad Namini, Mark Lucas, Bill Wilbert)
