May 10: Former Negotiation team members will gather to discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly from our last contract(s). and will return to worksites beginning in May willing to share the results

and get input from members in a series of “Listen Up”meetings.

Also expected to be discussed is the looming battle to deal with the impending attempts to not only refuse pay increases but the certain fight we will be facing when the legislature attempts to cut existing pay and benefits.

After these talks I will be holding work site meetings to find out what my co workers are most interested in. I intend to start holding meetings and making myself available from now until this process is done. Hopefully, after these talks thousands of members will be given the opportunity to attend “Listen-Up” type meetings between now and the start of bargaining to share their comments and concerns about the upcoming contract negotiations. “The ‘Listen-Up’ meetings could change the way members look at the bargaining process”, said a former a bargaining representative from Pro-Tech. Listening and talking to state workers about their jobs will give them the input into the contract they say they want.

“We’ll be looking for member feedback and we will focus our bargaining strategies to work for what is most important to our members.”
So far preserving our health care, retirement benefits and preventing outsourcing of State work are among the priorities identified by members in their bargaining surveys at this site.
