The Skilled Trades (ST) Unit and LLNS (Lawrence Livermore National Security) management have ratified a new contract that runs from January of 2015 until December of 2019. Provisions in the contract slow, and may even reverse, the steady erosion of take home pay and other benefits, especially retirement benefits. Other provisions create a safer and more productive work environment. The contract locks in benefits including paid holidays, vacation and sick leave accrual rates, and shift, holiday and on-call differential rates. This contract also ensures our ST employees have the right to bargain the effect of increases to employee pension contributions, reductions in 401K matching funds and other decreases in benefits.
