Please join the negotiations team for a virtual update on our progress on Monday, December 19 at 7pm central/6pm mountain time. Register for the virtual update at:

We are making progress thanks to the action, dedication, and commitment of our membership. In addition to our action days, NAPE/AFSCME members hosted a press conference at the State Capitol calling on the state to #InvestInStateEmployees.
