Bargaining Updates 2022

More than 30 union members have made a commitment to share their time and talents with our union by being part of the 2022 bargaining process. We have used the results of our member survey and the voices of our bargaining delegates and other union members to develop our bargaining goals.

Our first bargaining session is scheduled for 2/24/22 and this is when we will begin sharing our proposals. Our current contract expires 6/30/22 and our goal is to have a tentative agreement by then. We will be sharing bargaining updates throughout the process.
