Sisters & brothers, another update from C-TRAN: C-VAN paratransit dispatchers just ratified a new contract with 100% of eligible members voting yes! Here are the key highlights your officers want you to know:
- Sick leave buy-backs were made better: the company is moving to 50% buy-back, and the 200 hour requirement was removed
- Sick time can now be used for bereavement leave (it can be used for leave involving grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and first cousins)
- We won a 3% wage increase retroactive to June 1st, with CPI (based on Portland CPI, to a maximum of 3%) for 2018, 2019, and 2020
There were other improvements to working conditions in the contract so, as always, for more details or if you have questions about how this new contract impacts you, please contact your local C-TRAN officers, or call the union hall at (503) 232-9144 so that we can connect you!
