Cascades East Transit members, we’re happy to announce that your bargaining team has reached a Tentative Agreement with Paratransit Services for a new collective bargaining agreement! The TA includes better wages than the previous offer which members overwhelmingly rejected, improved language around bereavement leave, and an increase in the health insurance waiver from $150 to $300.
Members will have a chance to review this proposed contract and vote on whether to accept or reject it THIS SATURDAY, November 3rd. The vote will take place at the Bend Library, 601 NW Wall St., from 5 to 8pm. Please reach out to your local negotiating team, Carolynne Erickson and Jim Hutchings, for questions about the TA or more details about the vote.
