Our negotiations team spent two days before Christmas at the bargaining table as we continue the hard work of fighting for our best contract ever. Behind the support of NAPE/AFSCME union members, we have made significant progress. The deadline to reach an agreement is Friday, December 30 and the negotiations team is cautiously optimistic that a tentative agreement may be reached by the deadline this week.
The team will host an additional virtual update regarding the status of negotiations on Wednesday, December 28 at 7pm central time. This virtual webinar is open to all NAPE/AFSCME contract covered employees. Please register at: bit.ly/napewebinar.
On behalf of the negotiations team, thank you to all of our members who have participated in our December “Action Days.” Your support is felt! Be sure to “Wear Green” on Wednesday as the team heads back to the table.
