New Vacation Policy
A copy of the new vacation policy that will cover your group has been mailed to you. A couple months ago, it was proposed by the City for only non-represented employees and the maintenance group since they had a me-too clause in their contract.
This is a benefit that your Union had brought to negotiations for several years. Because of the strength of the Teamsters, the City agreed to include your clerical group for this benefit. I worked on your behalf to get it and am glad the City finally agreed with us! Since it will be in the form of a MOU (memorandum of understanding), it is just as strong as your contract and it will be a benefit that your entire group will enjoy, even though some have chosen to be non-members.
I hope you have a great holiday season!
