Local 6020 (AFTOCUE): Classified employees at Oregon Coast Community College won their first contract since joining Local 6020 (AFTOCUE) last summer. The new two-year agreement includes two additional salary steps and cost-of-living increases for both years.
Classified employees also achieved better vacation accrual, an additional paid holiday, and procedures for grievances, layoff/recall, and discipline or dismissal with just cause.
Kimberly Jones, bargaining team member said she’s pleased that the college approved the contract, but more excited by recent new members to the union.
“Nearly three-quarters of the classified staff at the College have joined the union,” said Jones. “I am hopeful that the College will benefit from the collegial system of shared governance provided for in this contract. I’m also going to enjoy the NEW holiday we negotiated--New Year’s Eve Day!”
