The IBEW Local 1245 membership at the Shelter Cove Resort Improvement District 1 unanimously ratified a four-year successor agreement with the District, which was subsequently approved and adopted by the District in Mid-May. The agreement will be in effect from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2023, and includes annual wage increases based on CPI (calculated using the SFO/Hayward/San Jose index), with a maximum of 3% in each year, potentially netting 12% over the term of the agreement. The members also secured an additional $100.00 to the District’s medical contribution cap, as well as a $275.00 boot/clothing credit that can roll over for three years and does not affect FR clothing or other PPE articles.
Overall, the bargaining process itself was positive and the new agreement contains no concessions. The Local 1245 Bargaining Committee consisted of Power Distribution Journeyman Jon Aronson, Construction Crew Superintendent Brian Speelman and myself. We would also like to thank Apprentice Journeyman Power Distribution James “JJ” Logan for serving as the judge for the ratification vote.
