Just some questions by our membership, answered:


  1. Why did Mary Beth say that we get $250 as a signing bonus only if a contract is ratified by October 19?  Wouldn’t we get retroactive pay on the 3% COLA.


Answer: The $250 signing bonus has not been negotiated .The union’s position has been that the City should pay retro pay back to June 16, 2018, regardless of when the contract is ratified.  This is still to be negotiated.


  1. Will union members be paid for the days that we are on strike?


Answer: The answer is maybe. If there is a strike, being paid for days on strike will be one of the negotiated terms.
