The bargaining team of Royalcliffe and staff were able to reach a tentative agreement, ratification to follow. This round of bargaining was very difficult for the team but they remained united on their demands. The members in this unit will see a significant pay increase when the minimum wage increases to $15. The starting wage for many of the members in this unit start at $12.55 and tops out at $14.01.
