Our coalition got off to a great start last Thursday night, by coming to an agreement with management on a few Letters of Agreement. Although we did not talk about them at our first session, we also are ready to move on a number of other issues, like lateral transfers, trial service for some classifications, and mentoring for CW & APD case managers.
We will be bargaining on Thursdays, and our next session is scheduled at SEIU HQ in Salem on February 26 at 5:30. You are welcome to attend. February 24 is our first Lobby Day for the Fair Shot Campaign. This should be a fun and exciting day at the Capitol with Legislators. This campaign sets us up for the budget battles in 2016. Join the fun and register today at http://seiu503.seiu.org/page/s/sign-up-for-2015-lobby-days. This is our fight for the future.
March 17 & 18 are statewide Days of Action. Plan on doing something purple in your worksites and sign the pledge card. This action really moves our contract campaign forward and your participation makes it all happen.
