Transit Contract Ratification Vote

On January 22, 2014, TEA Transit bargaining unit voted to "ratify" the tentative agreement with King County for a one year "roll over" of the existing contract. The current Transit staff contract expired on December 31, 2013. The "roll over" extends the contract to December 31, 2014 and provides a COLA of 1.67%.

Of 53 eligible Transit voters, 44 ballots were submitted (83%), no ballots were disqualified, and the vote was:

Ratify - 36
Do not ratify - 8

The contract now heads to the King County Council for adoption by ordinance. Once adopted by the Council, King County Payroll will increase your payrate by the COLA amount and calculate your retro back to 1/1/14.
