Contract Negotiation Update
As reported at the June General Meeting, our Local is currently in negotiations with Human Resources on our new contract. While the exact details cannot be shared at this time, there are some general points that can be shared. Most of the points we are working on came from the pre-negotiation committee as well as recommendations from the membership.
In some sections we are seeking a clarification on wording to make it less confusing. The articles we are currently working to changes and improve include Article III, Section 3; Article XI, Section 7; Article XIII, Section 6; Article XVII; Article XX; Article XXI, Section 1; and Article XXIII, Section 1.
Wage increases and contract length have not yet been discussed as we want to get non-financial issues worked out first.
We received a great response to the survey and will be using this information as we continue to negotiate. Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond and share your comments.
The next negotiation meeting is being scheduled. When more details are available, those will be communicated to the membership via our discussion forums, our announce list, and Brown Bag sessions.
