After almost a year of negotiations, the IBEW 1245 members working in electric classifications at the City of Lompoc have secured a series of equity increases:
- 10% equity increase to all electric classifications, retroactive to January 1, 2021
- 7.5% equity increase to all electric classifications effective July 1, 2021
- 7.5% equity increase to all electric classifications effective July 1, 2022
The increases amount to a total of 27% when compounded. The Lompoc City Council approved the increases in April, thanks in large part to IBEW Local 1245’s political work that has led to more labor-friendly lawmakers on the Council.
IBEW 1245 members Travis Border and Steve Mickelson helped with negotiations.
