Correction: Geez, when you work from home, it is easy to lose track of time. Tomorrow, meaning Wednesday, is the day the union stewards will be told the terms of the new contract. Sorry for the confusion.
Tomorrow, the Teamsters will announce the terms of the tentative agreement with the County of San Bernardino. Rumor has it they were able to negotiate good terms. The rumor that is going around is that there will be pay raises and COLAs. If so, all I can say is “about time!”
The negotiating team put their hearts and souls into the economic reopener and I do not want to take anything away from what they have accomplished. But our current favorite Human Resources Director was overheard bragging about how easy it was to handle the Teamsters. Just goes to show you how good his judgment is in other areas as well.
I’ve said it before and I will say it again. This is all about Devereaux and what he is trying to accomplish. We shall see tomorrow how good the new terms are. The employees deserve better than he has dished out the past five years. I hope for their sake, raises are in Devereaux’s best interest as well.
Perhaps someone can fill us in on how negotiations are going with the other unions. I’ve heard they are not going so well, but then again if the Teamsters get good terms, they all should.
