NEW MEA CONTRACT OVERWHELMINGLY RATIFIED BY MEMBERS!
Thank you to all the MEA members who took the time to vote on our new 3-year Tentative Agreement yesterday.
We had a record-shattering turnout! The contract was overwhelmingly ratified by a vote of 2,314 in favor to only 12 opposed, which amounts to a 99.5% “yes” vote to support the recommendation of MEA’s negotiating team. That 99.5% approval is also a record, indicative of the enthusiasm for the substantial general salary increases and other economic improvements contained in this agreement.
The next step is for the City Council to formally adopt a resolution approving a new MEA Memorandum of Understanding at an upcoming open session meeting, which will likely take place in early June. The Council has already approved the terms of this agreement in a closed session meeting in April.
If you have any questions or feedback, as always please contact MEA at firstname.lastname@example.org or 619-264-6632. Thank you!
