Thanks to everyone who completed the MPEC collective bargaining survey for Bargaining Unit G members. We incorporated the items you indicated as important in our plans. The current collective bargaining agreement or Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will expire on June 30, 2015. Monetary issues for 2016 and beyond must be negotiated prior to January 1, 2015 in order to be included in the Governor's budget for fiscal year 2016.
MPEC submitted its negotiations proposals in September and asked for dates to begin negotiations at the first available opportunity. The Secretary of State and Department of Budget and Managmeent have not yet responded with a date for negotiations, and are most likely waiting for the election for Governor to be decided before responding to us.
All eight members of the MPEC executive Board were members of the negotiations committee during the last negotiations and will again represent everyone in Bargaining Unit G.
MPEC Exec. Dir.
