In our third master table bargaining session this week, our team reached agreement on three contract sections. As we’ve reported, each of our many hundreds of our previous contract agreements must be reviewed and agreed upon once again, to ensure that our hard-earned rights remain strong. We return to the master table on Friday, August 4.

Here are the three sections we reached agreement on today:

  • 8.11 – Release Time for State Personnel Board Hearings
  • 8.12 – Leave Credits Upon Transfer in State Service
  • 21.2 – Electronic Monitoring (Excludes Unit 14)

You can read more about these and all of our current contract sections in our online, mobile-friendly search tool.

Unit-specific bargaining, along with negotiations at the master table, are being scheduled on a day-to-day basis. We’ll be at the master table Friday, August 4, and bargaining will resume again next week. 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.

As Local 1000 works to bargain a successful contract, we’ve escalated our actions to make our demands to be respected, protected, and paid.

We’ve launched the Local 1000 Hot Union Summer Pickets Campaign, with a target of 1,000 informational pickets at worksites across the state. They’re happening every day, and here’s how you can help:
