In August, IBEW 1245 concluded negotiations with PG&E for the Computer Field Analyst workgroup, which voted to join Local 1245 in 2015. The tentative agreement provided for enhanced job security, significant wage increases for most members, general wage increases going forward, and four classifications within the newly created Computer Field Analyst department.
The agreement was subject to ratification by the CFA workers, and ballots were counted on Wednesday September 13, 2017. Ballots were mailed to 52 eligible CFA members, and 50 members returned their ballots. The union committee members and union leadership thought this was a great agreement, and so did the CFA workers. Every member who returned a ballot voted “YES.” View the official vote tally here.
Special thanks to IBEW 1245 CFA committee members Collin Campbell, Tracy Dumont, Shane Lamb, Alfreda Smith, Braden Warrender, Ethan Wright and Steve Zaragoza. Their hard work on this agreement, commitment to their co-workers and patience with the process was critical to the successful outcome of the agreement.
