Maywood and Broadview have consolidated and now work for the IKE Dispatch Center, however they still have two separate CBA's. Pete Balderas assisted Telecommunicators Tammy Zaia and Paula Brown, who were instrumental in negotiating a 1-1/2 year CBA, and a huge "catch up" to Broadview's wages, and several other Broadview economics provisions into their contract. Insurance increases were limited to an additional 2.5%. The members of this unit truly disliked the 12 hour schedule that they were working, but are happy now working the same 8 hour schedules that Broadview works. The only down side is that upon transition to the IKE Dispatch Center, they would no longer have a supervisor in this contract.
