Collective Bargaining Agreements

ABOMA Collective Bargaining Agreements

ABOMA negotiates and administers collective bargaining agreements (CBA) on behalf of ABOMA Members. The Unions we negotiate with are Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 1 and the Teamsters Union Local 727.

With SEIU Local 1 individual CBA’s negotiated and administered cover High-Rise Building Janitorial Employees employed by the individual building member (the employer), Walk Up Building Janitorial Employees employed by the individual building member (the employer) and Door Staff Employees employed by the individual building member (the employer). In total ABOMA has 3 separated CBA’s with SEIU Local 1.

With Teamsters Local 727 ABOMA negotiates and administers 1 CBA covering Garage Employees employed by the individual building member (the employer) in High-Rise Buildings.

ABOMA Member Buildings are not automatically included in the negotiations or the completed CBA. In order to be included each member building must complete and file with ABOMA a labor authorization form. These forms are issued by ABOMA before commence of the negotiations. In the case of new members they are issued upon ABOMA approval of the Membership application.

It is important to note that non-member buildings and those Members who do not complete and file the ABOMA Labor Authorization Form will not be covered by the ABOMA CBA and will have to negotiate alone and by themselves with the Union. All ABOMA CBA’s include a “favored employer” clause which precludes non ABOMA Members from receiving better economic terms with out the Union extending the terms to all ABOMA Members coved by the CBA.

The ABOMA Negotiations Committee is appointed by the ABOMA Board of Directors and serve without compensation.

ABOMA encourages and welcomes suggestions from Members on items they wish to have the Negotiations Committee consider. Members can advise the Committee as to their suggestions by email to: Christine Friend - ABOMAsecretary@gmail.com
