IBEW 1245 members at the City of Santa Clara voted to approve a tentative agreement for a three-year successor MOU in July, and the City Council has voted to approve the agreement.
The agreement includes 5% retroactive wage increases with 15% in general wage increases over the three year term. As part of the new terms the City will increase its contribution towards medical premiums to fully cover the family Kaiser premium. Rest period language has been updated for 12-hour shifts, and new terms are provided for the compensation of Operations Planning Analysis.
The negotiations committee consisted of John Sanders, Jesse Murrill, Michael Keate, Ben Brown, Steve Popiel and myself.
