On August 22, 2018, the County of Sonoma and WCE met for their eleventh bargaining session.  The parties discussed the WCE’s responses to the County’s proposals (a one-year term extension, 2% lump sum payment, paid parental leave, a set of comparator agencies for the bargaining unit’s classifications, County coverage of increases to employee medical benefits, dental premium holiday, Cesar Chavez holiday, annual floating holiday, and de-linking unrepresented employees’ medical benefits from the retirees’ medical benefits, while maintaining current levels of retiree medical benefits).  WCE presented responsive proposals that include a request for a salary increase for approximately one half of their members, and increased retiree medical benefits. 

The parties are scheduled to bargain again on September 5, 2018.
