Clark County Commission Accepts UMC Contract Upheld in Binding Arbitration

UMC BCC Contract Accept Group Photo 2014Oct7 With union members and staff looking on, the Clark County Commission earlier this week (Oct. 7) accepted the UMC contract that was upheld last month in a binding arbitration ruling.

The vote and last month’s arbitration ruling followed UMC members’ ratification of the contract in December 2013.

Economic terms include:

  • 2% COLA, retroactive to Jan. 1, 2014
  • 2% COLA, retroactive to July 1, 2014
  • 1.5% wage increase, effective July 1, 2015
  • Preservation of Longevity Pay for ALL employees

Union leaders most recently had been working to ensure commissioners accepted the binding ruling and didn’t re-deliberate it during today’s meeting.

The 4% total wage increase began appearing in Sept. 29 paychecks. Retro pay will take two-to-three pay periods to be processed.

We continue to aggressively challenge layoffs that began at UMC on Sept. 30.
