The KENCOM Telecommunicators successfully locked in a three year contract.  The contract kept insurance cost sharing neutral.  The negotiating team secured fair wage increases for all members and were able to increase the back end of their pay scale.  Longevity pay was added to reward members with more than 15 years of service.  Language was added to improve shift trades, call backs and sick leave.  Team members were Karla Maurer, Heather Guiterrez and Melinda Jahp and were assisted by Labor Council Field Representitive Michael Powell.
