Contract with Western
Iowa Tech Boosts Rates


Contract Settled!

Local 1145 members, employees of Western Iowa Tech Community College, have ratified a new one-year agreement that raises minimum and maximum pay rates by 3.5 percent. All workers who have not reached the maximum rate will receive 3.5 percent on all rates and classifications. Workers who are at the maximum rate will receive $40 for each year of service.

Under the terms of the new agreement, Western Iowa Tech staff will receive time and one-half when working on a holiday, in addition to holiday pay. If workers are required to work over the winter break and have personal leave days, they now have the option of taking time off later or receiving time and one-half plus the holiday pay. Workers can accumulate unused sick days up to 110 days.

The negotiating committee consisted of Local Pres. Linda Widerman, Vice Pres. Rich Murray, Echo Still, committee person, and Chief Steward Patricia Ploem. They were assisted by UE Field Org. Rocky DeMaio.
