Contract Negotiations 2016

More sessions needed

CAPT’s bargaining efforts for a new contract are far from over. Additional sessions are needed and have been scheduled for June 28, 29 and 30.

In June, team members held working caucuses to finalize CAPT’s remaining proposals. To date, CAPT has presented all but one of its 66 proposals. Of those proposals, 63 seek to improve existing sections of our contract, while the other three seek to create brand new sections within the contract. The state, on the other hand, sunshined the entire contract, all 144 sections. The State typically sunshines the entire document so that it is free to introduce proposals on any given section of the contract at any time throughout negotiations. Between both ours and the state’s proposals, tentative agreements were drawn on 104 items, of which more than half were rollovers, those sections of the contract that are simply rolled over without discussion because they lack contention. There are 44 outstanding sections that still need to be bargained. Download flier.
