24 Hour Critical Incident Hotline: 877-IFOP-911

By Pete Balderas, Field Representative - Tuesday, February 26, 2013


The Willow Springs Telecommunicators recently agreed to a three-year successor agreement and will yield a 6% increase in wages.  The Union was also able to keep status quo, language that does not allow the Vllage to privatize.  Telecommunicators Sharme Singer, Margaret Dow, Linda Kawulia and Kathleen Olesch were assisted by Labor Council Field Representive Pete Balderas during a hard fought battle of negotiations.
