Ratification Voting Info / Highlights
Updated On: Sep 13, 2017

Contract Ratification Vote - New Collective Bargaining Agreement

The Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #93 and the Orange County Sheriff's Office have reached an agreement on a new, two-year contract for 2017-19.  This new contract agreement includes the largest wage increases in the history of the Orange County Sheriff's Office.  

We will be voting on whether to ratify the contract on September 19th and 20th.  The voting locations are as follows:

  • Sector 1  
  • Sector 2  
  • Sector 5  
  • Courthouse

If the contract is ratified, the wage increases would be effective on the first paycheck in October 2017.  Deputies and Court Security Deputies will vote on ratification on the contract as one bargaining unit.  Corporals and Sergeants will vote on ratification as one bargaining unit.  

We believe this contract is immensely better than the last contract.  We are hopeful that all bargaining unit members will vote YES and ratify this collective bargaining agreement.

Below are the highlights of the agreement, some articles were minor word changes and/or Present Contract Language only:
