**TENTATIVE AGREEMENT REACHED**
We are pleased to announce that at 11:30 PM last night, our bargaining team and the County reached a tentative agreement for a new 3-year contract.
Today’s demonstration at the fair is cancelled and the strike starting Sunday July 1 is off. You should plan on going to work this week on your normal schedule.
Your bargaining team will be meeting this afternoon at 1pm with the County to review and sign all tentative agreements.
We are scheduling a member ratification vote on Monday July 9th. Members will be given release time to vote. We will have more information about the ratification early this week.
MAPE and the County signed an agreement on Monday, July 2nd, that extends the 2015-2108 union contracts until the Board of Supervisors adopts the new agreements. By signing the extensions agreements, we guarantee that we continue to have a contract in effect while we are ratifying the new contracts.
