Officials announced striking a deal with mid-level managers in San Joaquin County. The county sent out a press release today, saying the San Joaquin County Management Association ratified the deal with a Thursday vote. It will go before the Board of Supervisors for approval on July 9.
The deal extends an existing agreement struck in 2011 for another year. However, concessions made in that agreement will sunset at the end of the months. Those concessions included a 2 percent reduction in base salary and four unpaid furlough days, the equivalent of a 1.5 percent salary reduction.
Here’s the release sent out by the county:
(STOCKTON, CA) – San Joaquin County is pleased to announce that on June 20, 2013, the San Joaquin County Management Association (SJCMA) voted to ratify a one-year extension of the current Memorandum of Understanding between the County and SJCMA. The roll-over agreement will expire June 30, 2014. Concession provisions contained in the 2011 agreement between the County and SJCMA that were scheduled to sunset on June 30, 2013 will sunset at the end of this month. Ken Vogel, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors said, “The County appreciates the concessions made by middle management employees in 2011. Their sacrifice, along with that of other County employees has contributed to our ability to initiate a recovery from the impacts of the economic downturn. We are pleased with the one-year contract extension, and we look forward to continuing good relations between SJCMA and the County.” The agreement is scheduled to go before the Board of Supervisors on July 9, 2013 for approval.
