Riverside County Reopener Bargaining Team Nominations 2021

The nomination period for our Riverside County Parity Pool Reopener Bargaining Team is now open!

This is your opportunity to represent your coworkers at the table as we propose classifications that have fallen behind everyone else and should receive market adjustments.

Nominations for the Bargaining Committee Team are open now and must be received by March 5th.

What’s a Bargaining Team?

A Bargaining Team is a committee of Local 721 members who are elected to lead Local 721’s negotiations at the bargaining table. Committee members will work with other Local 721 members to identify ideas and develop contract proposals. Committee members also meet with management to negotiate over proposals. Most importantly, Bargaining teams work with CATs (Contract Action Teams) to keep all 721 members informed about the progress of bargaining and to move Local 721 members into action to win the best contract possible.

Meetings with management generally take place on County time, but Committee team members must be prepared to meet frequently on their own time to develop proposals and the plan of action.
