Contract Ratification Meeting Schedule

A tentative contract agreement with the State of Nebraska has been reached! Ratification meetings will be held around the state and online from November 30 – December 18.

Union members must vote to accept or reject the tentative contract agreement. Our bylaws require members to attend a ratification meeting in order to vote. Ratification meetings will be held in locations throughout Nebraska.

Only NAPE members have the right to vote, however, all employees covered by the contract are welcome to attend a meeting. Employees who join the union at the meeting will have the right to vote on the contract.

Please Note: As of November 25, the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department has limited in person meetings to 10 people. The previously scheduled meeting on December 8 will now be held virtually (Registration link below.) In order to attend either the December 12 or December 18 meetings in Lincoln at “The Foundry” you must RSVP in advance by clicking here so we can ensure we are under 10 people per meeting.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will offer three virtual meetings. Those who participate in the virtual meetings will be sent a ballot to return by mail. Mail in ballots must be received no later than December 21. Registration is required to participate in the virtual ratification meeting.
