Wins in Westborough

February 8, 2013

Westborough DPW and Clerical Unit members overwhelmingly ratified new three year contracts. Both groups won two percent raises for each year. DPW members resolved an issue over the leadman’s pay and got double time for members working when a state of emergency is declared. Clericals won longevity pay comparable to the police and DPW.

Both units will now receive job postings before any outside advertising and notification of any new hires. Chapter chairs will also have a 30-minute union orientation with new hires. Probationary periods have been shortened to six months. The contracts will be put on the warrant for Town Meeting to approve this spring.
