IBEW 1245 members at the City of Lodi have overwhelmingly ratified a new three-year agreement, effective January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2021.
The agreement includes general wage increases for all classifications in each of the three years, including a 9% GWI effective July 1, 2019, a 4% GWI effective Jan. 1, 2020, and a 3% GWI effective Jan. 1, 2021.
The membership will contribute a total 2% to the employer share of the CalPERS contribution. Members will pick up 1% effective July 1, 2020, and an additional 1% on Jan. 1, 2021.
The agreement includes the elimination of a number of steps in the wage schedule to reflect that many of our classifications are Journey level. We also made some minor language changes either as cleanup or to reflect current practice.
The bargaining committee was comprised of Jeff Norwood, Rod Brown, Brent Sirkel, and Norm Cassin.
