Negotiations Team Reaches Tentative Agreement with State of Maine

The executive branch bargaining team has reached a tentative agreement with the State.

A meeting will be held on Monday July 27 with all members of the C.A.T. (contract action team) all Stewards and Chief Stewards in the Executive Branch, Executive Board members, and others who have volunteered to be on the Contract Action Team.

This may seem short notice but this comes after an early start in 2008. Months of planning and over 54 meetings to get to this point. A blast email went out………Postcards have been sent. Hopefully, we will have a good turn out on Monday.

Please make personal contact with members in the above listed categories and encourage them to attend, reminding them that this is their chance to hear first hand how we got where we are and what is in this contract.

The meeting with the CAT will start at 11 and we expect to be done by 3 PM.

It has been a long time coming. It would have been easy to roll over in this economy, after all who could blame the team? Your co-workers did not give up. They forged a team and never, never gave in to the easy way out.

No one is going to promise you a great contract, a wonderful contract to solve all your problems. What your friends, the members you elected have done is to get the best possible contract possible under the circumstances. You may be surprised, you may be disappointed in some aspects but you can be proud of the decisions you made and the people you sent to represent you.

For myself, for the Pro-Tech team and all the rest of the members of the Executive Branch Bargaining team, we thank you all for the chance to work for you.
I hope you can feel as good about us as I feel about every member of the team, our Union leadership, and our staff.

In Solidarity

Tom Maher.
