<p>County of Sonoma & Local 39</p>

Published: May 18, 2018

The County was informed last evening by Local 39 representatives that bargaining unit members voted on a tentative agreement with the County.  Regrettably, the vote taken by the bargaining unit was based on an incorrect tentative agreement between the County and Local 39. Specifically, the 2% one-time lump sum payment that was included in the tentative agreement is incorrect. The correct number for the lump sum payment is  $2591.00.

This error, for which the County is responsible, was discovered by the County the day after the May 10, 2018 bargaining session, on Friday, May 11, 2018 and the County immediately disclosed there was an error to Local 39 representatives the morning of May 11, 2018  After taking steps to ensure the calculations were correct, the County provided the correct tentative agreement and the costing sheet explaining the error to Local 39 representatives via email at 3:35 PM, Monday, May 14. 2018. A copy of that email with the corrected tentative agreement is attached in the link below.  

Sonoma County and Local 39-Proposed Revised Tentative Agreement

Upon confirmation from Local 39 representatives that the corrected lump sum number is acceptable, and ratified by the Local 39 membership as corrected, the corrected tentative agreement will be submitted to the Board of Supervisors for adoption.
