Your Unit 1 bargaining team is still awaiting a response from the State regarding our proposed Special Salary Adjustments. Our team has been putting pressure on the State to continue this conversation, and we are hopeful to see some movement or response in the coming bargaining sessions. Our Unit 1 table has approximately 10 outstanding items — with most outstanding items awaiting State responses — and the team remains ready to meet on these Unit issues at a moment’s notice.

The Unit 1 bargaining team is excited to see all of our fellow members actively participating in worksite pickets and events.  Please keep up the great work and take part in all events near you.  Our POWER lies with you.

Unit-specific bargaining, along with negotiations at the master table, are being scheduled on a day-to-day basis. When there’s activity at the table, we’ll email and post the results, often on the same day. Click here to read all the recaps of bargaining activity.
