Eugene Chapter 1 members voted 122-8 on Tuesday, Sept. 4, to ratify a new four-year contract that will expire in 2022.

Members cast their votes throughout the day at the Education Center and the Bus Shop.

Among the big wins in this contract was a 2.2 percent raise. The chapter also won an increase in the TSA contribution from 1.25 to 1.75 percent. The required employee contribution would also increase from 0.625 to 0.75 percent.

In addition, the bargaining team negotiated for guaranteed paid time for filling out necessary safety forms to report dangerous working conditions.
