Negotiations Update

We wanted to take a moment to update you on the current economic negotiations status. Monday and Tuesday we spent negotiating with the State regarding the financial aspects of the new agreement.
We do have some good news- It is agreed that we will essentially get what the other Unions are receiving in the way of wage increases during the new agreement, a small longevity pay increase, a small shift differential increase, as well as other issues including the step and COLA increases from the previous agreement.
There are, however, issues specific to our Union that we are still negotiating over and we have another date scheduled next week at which we hope to wrap up the agreement. We are pleased to tell you that they have responded positively regarding some of those issues. But, there are still details to work out. As soon as we have additional information to share we will be sure to send out an update to you.
