CAPT's contract negotiations resume October 8
CAPT’s Bargaining Team will resume negotiations on October 8, 9 and 10, as well as on October 15 and 16. The CAPT Board of Directors will arrive at CAPT headquarters on Oct. 7 at 10:30 a.m. to conduct board business as well as prepare for negotiations.
CAPT spent 16 days at the bargaining table with the State since June 17. Negotiations were temporarily suspended after it became apparent that the State was asking for too many takeaways. There was no way to reach an agreement before the legislative deadlines this year.
CAPT’s Bargaining Team is determined to fight the good fight until an agreement is forged that respects Psych Techs. The goal is to deliver acceptable wage increases and preserve the non-economic provisions that are so important to our members, such as Post and Bid and Exchange of Days off, provisions that provide a work/life balance for Psych Techs in state service.
Since our contract expired on July 1, the 1.4 percent OPEB was implemented on July 1. CAPT intends to bargain a raise to offset the OPEB deduction retroactively.
Keep close to your chapter representatives for the latest contract developments in the coming month and be sure to let them know where you stand on contract improvements, including working conditions and benefits.
