Members of Local 1245 at the City of Healdsburg rejected a contract proposal in a July 13 vote.
The proposal included major takeaways with respect to medical premiums, a 2% increase to PERS contributions for our members, and the elimination of a basic workweek.
The vote was 0 to 38.
The parties have met several times since the vote was taken and more meetings are scheduled.
Negotiating for the union are Business Manager Tom Dalzell, Senior Business Rep. Joe Osterlund, Todd Woolman, Valery Lopez and Ryan Kirchner.
