Bargaining Update Reg-2

Region’s Wage Move Not Enough Given Elimination of Pension Benefits

SAN FRANCISCO (Feb. 17, 2017) _ Region 2 moved its wage proposal up to provide a 14% increase over 3 years by implementing a salary range for interpreters. That’s 2% more than their last offer, but the Region still refuses to address the loss of pay interpreters across the region have felt due to the elimination of certain pension benefits paid by the employer. This makes the actual wage improvement for the majority of interpreters in the Region significantly lower.
