The IBEW 1245 members employed at Northrop Grumman in Sunnyvale have ratified a four-year contract by a vote of 15-3. The agreement includes annual wage increases of 3% in the first year, 2.75% in the second year, 2.75% in the third year, and 3% the fourth year, with no changes to medical or any other benefits.
As is the tradition for this work group, IBEW 1245 bargained in conjunction with the other unions on the property, including Machinists, Carpenters, and Teamsters. Local 1245 Shop Steward Desmond Ketton served with me on the bargaining team. Negotiations took place via Zoom, and we reached a table agreement in about six hours.
