1. February Meeting Schedule
2. Wastewater Contract Bargaining Update
Wastewater Supervisors voted to approve the County's contract offer and HRD has forwarded the contract on to the Council for approval.
The newly formed Wastewater Bargaining Committee is soliciting bargaining issues. These issues will be added to the following list by the Bargaining Committee and redistributed to the Bargaining Unit so that members can rank the 10 issues, which are most important to them. The 10 highest-ranking issues will be presented by the Bargaining Team to the County during bargaining for the 7/1/08 to 6/30/11 contracts.
This BARGAINING ISSUES list is a compilation of new issues and issues that were denied by the County during previous contract bargaining.
The Bargaining Committee will recommend a 4-member bargaining team and alternates to the TEA Board. The Bargaining Team consists of the Chair (Eric Davison), the President (Roger Browne) and 2 other Wastewater members. If you are interested in being on the Bargaining Team, submit a notification of interest by the end of business Monday, February 4, 2008 to Eric Davison.
