Wage re-opener at Evergreen brings $150,000 in new money for members

tescClassified staff covered by the Federation contract at The Evergreen State College in Olympia will get a lump sum payment of more than $550 this November under successful wage re-opener provisions for the current, 2013-2015 contract.

The agreement came Wednesday (Aug. 4) between the Federation TESC Classified Staff Bargaining Team and the college.

In addition to 98 percent of TESC Classified Staff receiving the M Step of 2.5 percent within the term of the 2013-2015 contract — and a guaranteed 1 percent cost-of-living-adjustment raise on July 1, 2014 — the TESC team successfully negotiated over $150,000 in new money.

This will be distributed equally amongst classified staff in a lump sum payment of $551 on Nov. 10, 2013, just before the holiday season. The memorandum of understanding with the lump sum payment is subject to approval by the TESC Board of Trustees, which is scheduled to meet Sept. 23.
