The Year of the Contract

2024 is shaping up to be the “The Year of the Contract,” with almost all of our bargaining units affected. Each bargaining unit will hold an in-person inforamtional meeting and will then be sent an electronic survey so members can give input on your priorities. The inside and residential have already completed this part of the process, and there was record participation. As the other contracts come up, we hope to have record participation from all of our members.

After negotiations, when we have received the last, best, and final offers from the contractors, we will hold contract ratification votes, followed by wage allocation votes, so members can decide what portion of the packages goes towards wages, health & welfare, retirement, etc.

It’s going to be a busy year. Keep your eyes peeled for announcements and updates.

Contract Expiration Dates

  • Inside Wiremen: 5/31/24
  • Residential: 5/31/24
  • City of San Jose: 6/30/24

All members are invited to participate in bargaining surveys, informational meetings, contract ratification votes, and wage allocation votes. All meetings will be held
in person.

So far the inside contract has had record participation, and our union is stronger when everyone participates. It’s your contract, your voice, and your vote!

Meet Your Inside Contract Bargaining Team

Under 332 bylaws, the business manager and president select the bargaining team. Led by Javier Casillas, our inside bargaining team members all have experience. In his role as president, Javier assembled the bargaining teams and chaired/co-chaired negotiations to win the largest and second largest inside contracts in 332 history, the largest residential, and the largest material handlers’ contracts. This year’s bargaining team will continue to focus on winning the biggest wage package possible for our members. Though work is slower than in previous years, we still have the power of a strong market share and our state-of-the-art apprenticeship and training center. The skill of our workforce is our biggest leverage at the bargaining table, so keep up the great work in the field!
