Hunterdon Rank and File members ratified a new contract today by a margin of 68% to 32%. The new contract will cover January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2019. 

Thank you to everyone who voted and to our bargaining  committee. Although this contract passed, we still have more work to do on salary adjustments and other issues. Stay tuned for a membership meeting schedule for the second half of 2017 and updates will be coming to Stewards and Activists. 

Congratulations to the Hunterdon Supervisors who ratified a new contract covering 2013 to 2016 after a long round of negotiations.  The new agreement provides for raises of 2% or $1,350 in two years of the agreement and another 2% in the final year. 

 

Congratulations to all Rank and File members of Hunterdon County for ratifying a new contract by a margin of 151 to 11. There were 7 provisional ballots. 

After two difficult years of bargaining, including mediation and fact finding, members voted today to approve a contract covering 2012 through 2015. 

I want to personally commend the entire membership for reaching this point and approving a new contract. We have confronted some of the most difficult times over the last 4 years that anyone can remember, but I have immense respect and gratitude for the strength of the membership to push for the best contract possible. We went through mediation and fact finding to reach a solid agreement.

Congratulations again for reaching this point. Thank you to the bargaining team for their efforts and for all of you who have asked to step up and become more active.
