May 19, 2020

UE Local 893, Sublocal 15, which represents the Cedar County Road Crew in Tipton, Iowa, ratified a new three-year agreement on March 3. The agreement includes a wage adjustment of one dollar plus two percent in the first year, one dollar plus three percent in the second year, and seventy-five cents plus three percent in the third year. “The membership was pleased with the contract, which brings road crew wages up with those in surrounding urban counties,” said Sublocal Secretary-Treasurer Hap Deerberg. The bargaining committee consisted of Deerberg, Sublocal President Scott Anderson, Troy Stoetzel, and Toby Thurston. They were assisted by Field Organizer Jennifer Marsh.
