“In these hard economic times, I am glad we were able to get the best possible contract we could and it is a blessing there are no cuts to current wage and benefit levels. This contract allows us to continue to provide quality referral services to the community.”
— Carolyn Stubblefield, Community Resource Advisor and Steward
During bargaining management also assured the 211 LA County bargaining team that they will immediately engage in further conversation around changes pertaining to Productivity and Quality Assurance policies that were not included in the tentative agreement but were important issues on the table.
211 workers are proud to have reached a tentative agreement that values the workers providing essential services for LA County residents. Now they look forward to bringing their message of strength through unity to the “Fight for a Fair Economy”
