Many thanks to the bargaining committee for their months of hard work. And a HUGE thank you to all who voted. Regardless of what you voted for, the union is YOU and you were heard.

We appreciate ALL of our Union members!

Leave Bank

you_are_the_unionURGENT:  Donate some of your vacation hours to our Local 1857 Union Leave Bank in April!  You can donate as little as 1 hour, but please support the union and donate something.  The union works hard for its member, and this is a time for the members to show their support for their union.  These hours make sure our dedicated officers and union stewards are fairly compensated for the time they put in for the benefit of everyone.  Talk to your Union Stewards for more information.  Please support your union and the people who work hard on your behalf.  Download the form below, fill it out/sign it/date it, then either hand it to your union steward or mail the form in (the address is on the bottom of the form).

Main Unit Final Offer

View the full final offer from KCLS for the main unit contract.

View the summary of changes for the main unit offer.

After 11 months of bargaining, KCLS and Local 1857 did not reach agreement on wages or medical benefits.  The offer you are voting on includes KCLS’ final offer on those two topics.  The bargaining committee feels that these proposals are too much of a takeaway, and will open the door to even more drastic changes to benefits in future years.  We are recommending that the membership vote no on this offer.
