State Contract Negotiations Update from Thursday, May 23, 2019

Tonight, after a dozen back-to-back bargaining sessions over the course of four months, SEIU Local 668 has come to a Tentative Agreement with the Commonwealth. Your State Contract Negotiation Team members have voted unanimously to support the ratification of this TA, which includes good wages and no changes to the current healthcare contributions, thanks in part to the mobilizing our 668 members did across the state this week.

Members of the negotiation team, as well as union leadership, will be holding briefing calls next week, discussing the specifics of the Tentative Agreement and outlining the ratification process. The call information is below—please read and RSVP your attendance to local668@seiu668.org.

Please Note: YOUR VOTING INSTRUCTIONS AND SUMMARY OF CHANGES WILL GO TO WHATEVER HOME ADDRESS THE COMMONWEALTH HAS ON-RECORD. If you have moved or changed addresses and have not updated with the Commonwealth HR, you will NOT receive your Summary or Ballot with voting information.

Briefing Calls: We will hold three briefing calls next week to discuss the specifics of the Tentative Agreement as well as the ratification process. Every member will need to send a personal email with their full first and last name as well as shop location to local668@seiu668.org to receive that specific call’s login credentials. The calls will be held Wednesday, May 29th at noon and 6pm and on Thursday, May 30th at 6.30pm. Please be sure to specify which call you would like to be part of in your RSVP email.

The State Contract Negotiation Team is extremely happy with the work we’ve done to bring a contract that will improve the lives of our members.
