Local 1075 Wins Big Arbitration Case Vs Monmouth County

In a great start to the New Year the Local 1075 scored a big win for Monmouth County workers.

The County was ordered to reverse a unilateral 50% cut in promotional increases and payback all employees who were shortchanged.

After efforts to reason with the county administration failed, the Union took the case before an Arbitrator. The arbitrator rejected all five of the County’s arguments. Instead, the Union won on the principle that a Union contract protects Union Members and an employer must honor it and bargain fairly over wages, benefits and other terms and conditions of employment.

For as long as anyone can remember, a promotion came with an increase to the minimum of the new position, or 6% whichever was greater. The County administration unilaterally decided to cut that in half to just 3%, even though the County Administrator received a 15% increase when promoted.

Presenting the case to the Arbitrator were President Kevin Tauro and Local 1075 Attorney Barry Isanuk, along with Chief Steward and EVP Neil Broccoli and Shop Steward Ed Fitzgerald.

If you were promoted within the past two years and did not receive a full 6% increase, or better, you are entitled to be made whole. Please contact your Steward.
