METRO WORKERS Tentative Agreement Vote RESULTS!

- making sure COLA is extended to everyone as intended in our last mediation date
- wage panel for natural resource series
- set up committee on vacation bidding
- and enforcing the new language won in this contract! 
We can't stop here building a better stronger voice for workers in Metro Parks and Zoo!

DON'T GET CORNERED IN AN INVESTIGATORY MEETING
GET BACKUP! USE YOUR WEINGARTEN RIGHTS.
Union members have a legal right to request a steward or a union representative be present in meetings that could lead to discipline. If you are ever called into a meeting by management you should say: "If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I request that my union representative be present."

Silverton Workers Win Contract Fight!

Congrats to Silverton workers for sticking with the fight and winning!!! After a work site action targeted at their most recent bargaining session today workers in the City of Silverton win a TA they can say YES to! In addition to fighting off take-aways like moving the city off of wage cuts, Silverton workers won very healthy wage increases for those determined to be "undermarket.
