Ongoing negotiations with AFSCME union local 2406 and the Community Action Agency for Head Start Teachers have tentatively agreed upon four proposals for the new 2016/2017 contract. The long awaited news that the teachers have needed is a 2.0% permanent increase in the hourly rate of pay. They also get to keep the employee appreciation day as a paid holiday.
It has come to the union's attention that many OKC employees want to keep receiving a paper check stub. Many departments that are out in the field (i.e.: Solid Waste, Bulky, Streets, Crew leaders and workers I & II, Refuse workers I & II) may not have access to computers or are computer illiterate. Some of these people may not even have smart phones. Therefore, they will find it difficult to impossible, to log into and view payroll history on the PeopleSoft website.
We are working with personnel and other departments, to help the above mentioned. If these issues are not ironed out with our communications, this will be included in contract negotiations for 2016-17
