    UFCW Local 1994 MCGEO Secures First Multi-Year Pact With Montgomery County

    We will be mailing the tentative agreement and scheduling a series of meetings to review the changes and vote on the new agreement... Stay tuned.

    UFCW Local 1994 MCGEO has reached a tentative agreement with Montgomery County on a three-year contract covering 7,000 of the County’s General Government workers. The pact provides:

    • An immediate signing bonus of $2,000 for all full-time merit employees (pro-rated for part-timers);
    • 3% longevity increases;
    • Establishes a path toward health care cost containment and sustainability;
    • Creates a process for consideration of “hybrid” pensions to blend the stability of Defined Benefits and the cost predictability of Defined Contribution plans. 

    Negotiated under a modified interest-based bargaining process with assistance from the Federal Mediation & Conciliation Service, the agreement includes a wage re-opener provision in November of this year, and annually after that. All bonuses and longevity increases will be paid on the first full pay period following July 1, 2012.

    “We’re proud of the package. We are moving toward the goal of recovering the losses our members have endured over the past few years. The contract represents a turnaround in the negative pattern of the past several years and a win-win for the union, management and taxpayers,” declared Local 1994 MCGEO President Gino Renne.

    Highlights of this three-year agreement include:

    A $2000 bonus (pro-rated for part-timers)
    A 3% longevity increment

    Hybrid Pension
    We have negotiated a process to explore with the county and to hopefully implement a hybrid pension plan.  A hybrid plan would provide our members in the defined contribution plan, with much greater degree of stability in retirement.

    Health Care
    The County agreed to work together with our union to develop and implement health management initiatives.

    In Nov. 2012, the contract will re-open on wages, health premium split, and unresolved pension issues.

    In addition to the wages and benefits, our tentative agreement includes new language on working conditions and departmental issues.
