Your Contract

Know your contract

A Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) is a formal and binding contract between employers and employees. SEA and bargaining teams work long and hard to negotiate the very best agreements possible between management and the work force. Once an agreement is reached, the resulting document is said to be a tentative agreement (TA). All full members of the bargaining unit then have the option to vote for or against accepting the TA. If the majority vote in favor of accepting the TA, it is then considered a ratified contract.

Members gathered at a press conference to urge the governor for a fair contract.

Once the CBA is signed and in place, the employer can’t make any changes without first negotiating those changes with the union. An SEA Collective Bargaining Agreement spells out in writing such items as, wage rates, insurance, holiday pay, vacation time, seniority; to name a few. The contract also provides for such things as sick leave, jury duty, funeral leave, military service leave, hours of work, overtime, safety regulations, and conditions of employment.

We encourage you to read the collective bargaining agreements which can be found below.

 Below are the contracts we’ve secured for counties, municipalities, the judicial branch, colleges, and the private sector.
