Last week, Riverside County members voted overwhelmingly to ratify a new contract with the County. This Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors made it official, voting 4-1 in favor of approving the deal, locking in our hard-fought wins over the imposed terms and conditions we’ve been operating under for more than a year. Supervisor Jeff Hewitt was the only supervisor opposed.
This has been a long fight, and it’s only through our strength and solidarity that we were able to hold off imposition as long as we did and reach a new long-term deal. However, the fight to raise up Riverside County doesn’t end here!
It’s vital that we stay Union Strong at our worksites and ensure that the terms of our contract are enforced, that we sign up new employees and that we lay the groundwork for bigger and better wins at the table by building our union strength every day.
When we fight, we win!
