As you know, the State was trying to force our members to use all PLB days by June 30, 2012 and violate the MOA that permitted carryover and cash out of PLB days. PLB days were agreed to between the unions and the State in exchange for agreements to defer contractual raises and to take furlough days.
The CWA state worker bargaining committee will hold a call for all CWA state worker shop stewards to update stewards on the status of contract negotiations with the state. The call will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 29th.
To join the call, dial: 888-886-6603 at 6:30 p.m. and then enter the passcode followed by the '#' sign, which is 17819#
