County reaches tentative agreement with Association of Mid-Management Professionals and Solano Health and Social Services Association of Professional Employees
September 28, 2017
SOLANO COUNTY – County officials have reached a tentative labor agreement with the Association of Mid-Management Professionals, a labor union representing more than 100 mid-management employees and the Solano Health and Social Services Association of Professional Employees of Solano County (SHAPE), a labor union representing more than 80 supervisory employees. Both labor unions have voted to ratify their new contracts they just reached with the County.
The two-year tentative agreements provide a 4 percent wage increase in 2017, increases to the County's contribution toward health insurance – which is tied to Kaiser Bay Area premiums for both January 2018 and January 2019 – and a supplemental health insurance contribution of $50 for employees with family coverage.
"Getting an agreement with these two groups is encouraging," said Birgitta E. Corsello, Solano County Administrator. “Everyone has worked collaboratively to reach these agreements, which are both thoughtful and fair, and I’m hopeful for other groups to follow this lead.”
The Board of Supervisors will consider adoption of the tentative labor agreements at its next meeting scheduled on October 3.
