City of Mount Vernon

PROTEC17 City of Mount Vernon members work in the Planning, Engineering, GIS and Building Divisions within the Development Services Department to keep the City afloat (sometimes literally!).

Congratulations on your first union contract!

We have our first official UNION contract with the City of Mount Vernon! Some highlights of the contract include:

  • 11.5% wage increase over 3 years
  • “Just Cause” for discipline
  • Out of class pay
  • Layoff and recall rights
  • “Flex” time protection
  • Preference for internal hires

Although there were challenges throughout this contract negotiations process, we successfully made it over the finish line —  when we fight, WE WIN!
