Collective Bargaining Agreement Negotiations: The Board of Directors and Negotiating Attorney, Craig Deats, have reviewed and made proposals to all 34 Articles of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Our proposals which were agreed upon by the Board of Directors were made with the best interests for the membership. Some of those proposals are as followed: increase the caps so that all qualified unit bargaining members receive education and incentive pay, introduce an incentive pay for PTO's and DTO's, Change of procedures for transfering from Detention to Law Enforcement and the current promotion process, to include wages and other benefits, but most importantly, the disciplinary process of Article 19. The first sit down between the Board of Directors and the County officials to include the Sheriff's Office representatives will be on April 20, 2015. This meeting will set the rules prior to negotiating.
Update Contact Information: Provide the DSABC office with an updated mailing and email address so that you can stay informed with information such as newsletters, upcoming events, updates on grievances, the progress of the Board of Directors with the upcoming contract and other DSABC matters. Correct information must also be updated to receive any mailers from CLEAT.
