Victory in San Bernardino

An overwhelming majority of Teamsters voted this week to ratify a new four-year contract with the County of San Bernardino in California. After nearly a year of bargaining, Local 1932 was able to secure a strong contract with significant increases in take-home pay for County workers.

The increases in take-home pay are based on fair across-the-board raises, substantial improvements to employer contributions in health insurance premiums, and merit advancement reform that will help members progress through steps in half as much time as before. The contract covers 11,000 members.
