Unit Contract


Unit contracts cover specific economic matters and working conditions for designated groups of workers called “bargaining units”. Each unit contract defines items unique to the titles in the unit.

Who is covered under Unit Contracts?

  • Each unit contract covers specific occupational groups. DC 37 has 68 unit contracts with city agencies, non-mayoral agencies, libraries and cultural institutions. Units may cover as few as 50 workers or, as in the case of the Clerical and Administrative Employees Unit, tens of thousands of workers.

What is in each Unit Contract?

  • Wages and salaries of the titles in the unit
  • Unique working conditions for titles in the unit
  • Grievance procedures

If applicable:

  • Assignment differentials
  • Service differentials
  • Longevity payments
  • Uniform allowance

* Every Local has a bargaining committee to negotiate unit contracts. When requesting a copy of your unit contract from your local or your union representative, please indicate your title and agency.
