Negotiations Update

Your CSEA team is pleased to announce the completion of the 2017/2018 contract negotiations.  We believe we have reached a fair settlement on several items.

Our “tentative agreement” must now go to CSEA headquarters for approval.  Once that is complete, we will be scheduling a ratification meeting for you, our chapter members, to vote.  NO DETAILS of the tentative agreement will be released until we have approval from headquarters.

Thank you for your support, and we will keep you updated as to when the “vote” day will be.

Your 2017/2018 negotiations team,

Job Suarez, Chris Lawyer, Daisy Bennett, Allyson Holt, Cheryl Townsend
