King County successfully negotiated a two-year labor agreement that delivers new efficiencies and sets total compensation with a coalition representing nearly half of King County’s 14,000 employees.
“This agreement makes sense for our employees, our government, and our region,” said Executive Dow Constantine. “It builds on our ground-breaking Master Labor Agreement with the King County Coalition of Unions, and will help us continue to tackle the most pressing challenges facing us today.”
“The significance of this Total Compensation Agreement between the Coalition of Unions and King County should not be overlooked,” said Michael Gonzales, Senior Business Agent with Teamsters Local 174.
“This contract, along with Master Labor Agreement, not only brings equity to our membership but also proves Executive Dow Constantine is correct that by working with labor you can treat your employees with dignity and at the same time make government efficient for all the residents of King County,” said Gonzales.
