Due to an increase in Health Insurance Premiums for the 2023-2024 plan year, CWA and SDIRC met on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 for negotiations. During the 5-hours session, the CWA Negotiating Team bargained with the School District of Indian River County regarding the percentage split for employee contributions. See the tentative agreement (pdf below) for your review. The next step is for all our to members to vote to ratify this agreement. Voting will take place on Thursday, May 18th between 7:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Union Hall, located at 2050 40th Avenue, Vero Beach, FL. Union representatives will be there to address any questions or concerns, you may have. ALL CWA Members of the Bargaining Unit can vote!!! That means ALL Local 3180 Union members AND SDIRC Support Staff employees (who are NOT a member of the union) are encouraged to vote.
Please inform your co-workers!

We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday, May 18, 2023.

Due to the union busting laws recently passed by the Florida Legislature, we are encouraging ALL CWA Local members to attend one of two meetings in May to learn more about these laws and how they will affect our union. The meeting is very, very important for our members to attend so that you will be informed as to how our union will be addressing these new laws and how we plan to move forward with some necessary changes to keep our union strong!

Please go to the "For Members Only" section to see the pdf flyer for more information about these meetings.
