Bargaining Session Dates Added
State mediator to participate in upcomining sessions.
Robert Strassberg has been assigned by the state to mediate between the HOA and the Employer. Additional bargaining sessions have been scheduled for April 13 and April 20, from 5:30 - 9 pm and tentatively, for May 18th. Additional sessions will be added based on the mediator's availability.
Your bargaining team continues to make progress on the non-economic issues and have signed some tentative agreements, but remain far apart on salaries and other economic issues. Due to the "ground rules" surrounding negotiations, the HOA cannot share the tentative agreements with the membership. What we can share is that we have made favorable progress on addressing paternity leave and some of the other paid time off issues communicated through the membership survey last spring.
