Teamsters at DOC,

On October 4, 2012 your Union filed an Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) complaint with the Public Employees Relations Commission (PERC), charging  bad faith bargaining on the part of the State. 

The Union believes that the State engaged in pattern bargaining and take-it-or-leave-it tactics.  Throughout the bargaining process, your Union demanded that the State recognize the unique work you do inside the prisons, but the State refused to do so.   

Your Union also presented a number of proposals to close the pay disparity between Union members who do not receive assignment pay and those who do.  Even though the Union ultimately proposed to address the compensation inequity in a manner that would not have resulted in any additional cost for the State, the State Office of Financial Management refused to bargain in good faith and simply asserted that it would not waiver from the “deal” that it struck with every other state employee union.

We believe that the State violated its legal obligation to bargain in good faith by refusing to acknowledge the unique working conditions of prison employees and refusing to meaningfully negotiate over compensation issues that are specific to Teamsters at DOC. 

Please follow the link below for a full copy of the ULP.
