UNITY RALLY is VERY Well Attended!!

In a show of solidarity, nearly 200 members attended the 2016 Pre-Negotiations Unity Rally at the SLO County Veterans Hall on Wednesday, April 6, 2016. Members of Big Unit and Trades Unit Negotiating Committees and Teams were present to listen to members’ concerns and to answer questions. 

During the Rally members voiced their frustration with their inadequate pay rates, the high cost of medical insurance, and a seemingly unconcerned Board of Supervisors. The overwhelming message from the members present was that the county needs to do much more to address the pay and benefit deficiencies in the upcoming negotiating cycle.

SLOCEA General Manager, Pat McNamara, discussed the importance of remaining unified, and prepared to utilize all options in obtaining a good contract.
