➤ How did you come up with the 5% / 4% / 3.25%? (12.25%) TA from May 17th? Why didn’t we bargain for more?

  • This is the highest percentage increase we’ve negotiated on record. Your bargaining team worked to get the best increase possible for that TA.
  • With zone pay factored in, the downtown Seattle total package increase is 15.18% over the life of the contract.
  • Several trades have ratified similar, and lower increases over the past months
    • Laborers ratified 5% 4% 3% plus parking
    • Cement Finishers ratified 5% 4% 3% minus parking
    • The membership didn’t ratify the last TA, so the committee is back at the table to try to get an agreement that members will agree to.
