SCE/Local 47 SCE Wage and Non-Wage Economics Bargaining Concludes
Updated On: Sep 13, 2017

PACKAGE TO BE SENT OUT FOR A MAIL BALLOT

The second day of bargaining involving the SCE Wage and Working Conditions Agreement and Standalone SCE agreements for Surveyors, Air Operations and Logistics began at the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel in Pomona. 

Those attending for Edison were Steve Crowell (Manager of Labor Relations), Jenny Sievers (Edison Law Department) and Greg Ferree (Vice President T&D).

For the Union, Edwin Rodgers (CMA Alhambra), Greg Brown (Lineman Redlands), Jeff Statom (Troubleman Huntington Beach), Terrance Bynum (Troubleman Long Beach), Tyrone Chamois (Lineman Ontario) Pat Lavin (Business Manager) Mitch Smith and Mike Moore (Local 47 Staff) & Doug DeDea (former SCE Labor Relations Manager & #47 consultant).

The afternoon began with discussion over the one remaining issue remaining on the table, WAGES. You might recall that at the first day of bargaining from last week the wage bargaining was stalled with the Union proposing an across the board increase of 4.5% for 2018 and 4.5% for 2019.  With the Company at 2.5% and 2.5%.

In addition, we reminded the Company that an issue that must be addressed was the Housing Allowance for our members on Catalina Island.  We had just learned prior to the start of the bargaining that all management on the island have been receiving (we don’t know for how long) a $1500 per month housing allowance in addition to the Island Travel Allowance.  We want to see the same payment each month for our members.  It was later agreed that the issue would be taken up via an Article 3 Section M (mid-term bargaining) at a future date.

During the afternoon the Company began with an offer to increase both years by 2.75%.  The Union Committee informed the Company that that was not good enough.  We believed the Increase Escalator in the GRC with the CPUC (2.82% in '18 & 2.79% in '19) provided more room than what they were offering.

After a number of lengthy discussions between the parties the Company came in with its last best and final offer of 3.0% increase for January 1, 2018 retroactive to the first pay period in October of 2017 and 3.0% increase effective January 1, 2019.  With the early implementation date of October 2017 that equates to a non-compound increase for both years of 6.75%.

After a brief caucus the Union Committee responded by stating that it would accept the Company’s offer and that the Committee was unanimously recommending it for ratification by the membership.

Below is a recap agreed to wage increase and the non-wage economic items that were previously agreed to at last week’s bargaining.
