Our bargaining team has, over two marathon sessions on Sunday and Monday, continued their work with State negotiators, primarily on economic issues. 

We’re working on a range of issues that affect all our represented members, key among them, a general salary increase and the health care stipend. There’s more: we’re continuing to evaluate the State’s response to our requests for Special Salary Adjustments, skill-based differentials, recruitment and retention pay, and other reimbursements and allowances.

Remember, in order to reach an overall Tentative Agreement, each one of literally hundreds of contract sections have to be reviewed and agreed to by both parties. This includes what’s now become a long list of improvements to working conditions as well as improvements in our pay.

We’re pressing the State to resolve our negotiations positively – and quickly. Towards that goal, we’re literally meeting throughout the day and night, nearly around the clock. 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.
