There was no meeting held between Unit 11 and the State on Monday. We still have a number of our proposals awaiting the State’s response, including key economic proposals.

Since June 23, Unit 11 and our 8 other bargaining units have been meeting on an “as-needed” basis. In addition, during this time a few of our bargaining teams have met on “normally scheduled” days as they have in previous weeks.

In any case, when Unit 11 meets with the State, we will continue to issue a bargaining recap, often on the same day. These recaps are emailed and posted to the Contract Action Central web page.

On Friday, Vice President for Bargaining Irene Green reported that we have not yet reached a Tentative Agreement with the State for a new contract. We’ve negotiated fairly and openly, and the State hasn’t given us a response that respects us. 

It’s important for you to know that our current contract remains in effect, with all your protections in place. We will continue to bargain with the State while exploring every option available to win a new contract. Take the time to watch this video update from Irene.

We’ll be escalating our actions to win a new contract in the coming days, and we hope you’ll join the fight.

You’ll find the latest information about upcoming actions at our Contract Action Center.
