Our DOC negotiations team worked late into the night on Friday and early into Saturday morning after a long week in mediation in an effort to reach an agreement with the State over our 2019-2021 collective bargaining agreement.
This week DOC negotiations shifted to economics as your Union presented its robust and aggressive economic proposal demanding the State recognize the incredible service that correctional employees provide to protect the public.
A sea of red filled the room at our DOC negotiations this week. Members of our union’s bargaining committee were decked out in red T-shirts, red caps, red sweatshirts and blouses. Our team had deliberately coordinated our dress to protest the State’s proposal to restrict our access vacation leave.
Negotiations between our union team and the State continued this week over our 2019-2012 DOC contract. The meetings took place at our Teamsters Union hall in Tukwila on Wednesday, May 23 and Thursday, May 24.
