Guardian-Sept.-2016.jpgWe’ve come a long way since the last issue of our Guardian newsletter. We completed the bargaining process and achieved some meaningful improvements to our DOC contract. We also made a strong case to significantly raise wages at our interest arbitration hearing. 

We expect the arbitrator to issue a decision on a general wage increase as well as on other compensation elements of our contract by the end of this month.

With so much to report, I'm excited to announce the fall issue of our Guardian newsletter. 

In this issue, you'll find a report from the interest arbitration hearing, a story about a WSP member who is running for office, and an editorial piece by our Union’s Secretary-Treasurer, John Scearcy.

You can access a PDF of the newsletter here. For print copies, talk to your Shop Steward or Business Representative. 

Thank you and stay safe!
