City of Tacoma Members Approve Merger with Click! Broadband Technicians

Click to find out more about City of Tacoma Members Approve Merger with Click! Broadband Technicians
August 19, 2010
The results of our recent Unit Merger election, which combines the 9 member Click! Broadband Technician unit with the 159 member City of Tacoma unit were reported by PERC on August, 19, 2010.

In the Click! unit, there were 9 votes for the merger and 0 votes against it.
In the City of Tacoma unit, there were 99 votes for the merger and 6 against it.
80 Yes votes were required to win from the COT Unit, and 5 for the Click! unit.

The merger increases the City of Tacoma bargaining unit to 168 members, the third largest in the City of Tacoma. The merger brings greater strength to our Union, and provides greater bargaining power to both units.

Click! management fought fiercely to stop this merger, spending thousands of dollars in legal expenses and manager's salaries to hold a hearing back in March, to fight against holding this vote. Their claim was that these employees did not share a 'community of interest' with other Local 120 members, even though they do similar work. PERC ruled in our favor, clearing the way for this merger election.

Talks with the City will begin shortly, that will work to bring these new members under our existing Contract.

Quote of the day: "For a worker to refuse to belong to a union is not to exercise a democratic freedom. It is to accept benefits that others have worked for without contributing to the costs. Democracy flourishes only when freedom is accompanied by responsibility." (Australian Bank Employees Union).
