ITEM 104-102-R0999 Approval of Tentative Agreement with Butte Teamsters Union Local No. 2
THAT: The Montana Board of Regents approves the Tentative Agreement with Butte Teamsters Union Local No. 2.
EXPLANATION: The tentative agreement with Butte Teamsters Union Local No. 2 (Teamsters) covers approximately 100 classified employees at Montana State University-Bozeman who perform custodial and food service duties. The bargaining unit has already voted to ratify the tentative agreement. The Teamsters agreement provides for the same compensation package as was negotiated with MPEA. Only two language changes were agreed to. The use of bargaining pool leave in overtime situations was clarified, and it was agreed that food service employees who opt to work on the custodial crew during the summer months will not suffer a reduction in wages. This commitment is only for the summer of 1999 and it is understood that wages may be reduced in subsequent years.
ATTACHMENT: See attached tentative agreement.
