A four year labor contract with 911 Employees Association  is up for consideration by the Deschutes County Commission Monday.

 

The collective bargaining agreement between the two expired in June of 2011.

 

The Bend Bulletin reports that Deputy County Administrator Erik Kropp says they have been in negotiations since February of 2011, and they considered binding arbitration, but were finally able to come to an agreement.

 

The agreement applies to all regular full time employees in the 911 Service District,  excluding elected officials, supervisors, confidential employees and volunteers.

 

It includes a 2.9% Cost of Living Adjustment retroactive to July of 2012; and other cost of living arrangements.

 

Employees voted to ratify the agreement in early August and if the Commission approves the contract, will go into effect immediately.
