Attorneys bargain first-time contract

by County and City Employee staff on January 12, 2014

More than 20 Seattle City Attorneys have successfully bargained a first-time contract. It was overwhelmingly supported by the new Council 2 members and now awaits ratification by the City Council.

The attorneys joined Council 2 earlier this year after parting ways with their former bargaining agent.

“They voted to affiliate with us because they felt they did not have enough bargaining strength on their own,” explains Council 2 Director of Public Safety James Trefry.

“They wished to take advantage of our broad-based experience at the bargaining table.”
