We are pleased to announce that nearly 100% of the ballots received favored the fact-finder’s report that recommends fair wage increases. We thank the membership for participating in this process and are especially grateful that over a third of the membership cast their ballots in light of the busy holiday season.
What’s next: The governor continues to refuse putting the fact-finder’s report on the Executive Council agenda, as prescribed by law. The next step involves moving the fact-finder’s report through the Legislature to garner as much support from elected officials as possible. Once we know what this process will look like, we will notify you.
This has been a long process and we are committed to move forward to achieve a fair contract, regardless of how long it may take. We will continue to send you regular updates.
