    Default Local 350 ratifies contract with Recology

    These drivers, mechanics and operators won a 5 year contract.

    Local 350 Members Ratify New Contract at Recology San Bruno
    Local 350 members at Recology in San Bruno, California recently voted overwhelmingly (with only one "no" vote) to ratify a new contract after a long, hard-fought negotiation.

    The five-year agreement ensures members will receive significant wage and pension increases that will bring them to the area standard. The 28-worker unit is comprised of residential and commercial semi-drivers, garbage and recycling drivers, mechanics and loader operators who operate the San Bruno transfer station and provide several other essential services in San Bruno.

    “Our main goal for this contract was to achieve parity with the other contracts in the county. Our members and negotiating committee fought hard to achieve this goal, and it paid off. As a result, they’ll receive wage increases of around twenty percent over the life of the contract (more than 10 percent in the first two years alone) and a 45 percent increase in pension. In addition to the economic gains, we were able to secure more lenient disciplinary language and language to help improve staffing levels. Our members displayed tremendous solidarity throughout the entire process and ultimately got what they deserved,” said John Bouchard, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 350.

    Default Local 350 Members Approve New Five-Year Deal at Recology Mountain View/South Bay

    Local 350 members who work at Recology Mountain View and Recology South Bay voted overwhelmingly last week, by a vote of seventy to two, to ratify an excellent five-year agreement. The new contract provides improved compensation, additional worker protection language and maintains its full maintenance of benefits.

    “This was a long, hard-fought negotiation. Our members knew their worth, and we’re not willing to fall behind. We made sure they either kept up with the industry standard or be the leaders for their region. This is a unique group because of the number of different municipalities these essential workers have to service. As the pandemic forced itself upon us, our essential worker-members understood the need to be patient and rise to the occasion to make sure that the solid waste and recycling was removed from the city streets, said Local 350 president and lead negotiator Sergio Arrañga. “Our committee members were a crucial part of strengthening this contract; their knowledge about the day to day operations allowed us to hold the company accountable on all aspects.”
