Members from our two locals that represent workers at the East Bay Municipal Utility District recently won a new contract that guarantees them a 4% raise in the first year, retroactive to April 2017, as well as a Consumer Price Index (CPI) increase plus 0.5% over the next three years.

In both units, 75% of the membership participated in ratifying the new agreement with 96% of the members overwhelmingly voting in support of the new contract.
