Our bargaining team is pushing back hard after receiving a shameful 6% pay raise offer from the State. During a weekend-long negotiating session, our team proposed a general salary increase that respects us:

Local 1000’s proposal: 26% raise over three years; 10% in 2023, 8% in 2024, and 8% in 2025.

Our contract expires in five days, and we’re putting pressure on the State to bring home a contract we can be proud of. Here’s what you can do – NOW –  to make our demand heard:
