WE HAVE A TENTATIVE AGREEMENT FOR A CONTRACT for State Workers (Executive Branch).
We reached an agreement on a July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2019 contract with the Murphy Administration that addresses all retroactive increments, clothing allowance and two across the board increases of 2% and 2%.
We will meet with Shop Stewards and get you the details of the Agreement this week. We will be announcing voting details and dates soon through our shop stewards and worksite broadcasts. You will be able to see everything in writing before the ratification vote.
We achieved our goals. The contract improves on the pattern set by other settlements and sets a foundation for our next contract. We bargained to receive all of our increments retroactively and raises for workers at max. There are no concessions in this tentative agreement. We protected the Contract.Read More

We have litigation around step increases and other issues, open clothing allowance disputes, and important contract language at stake. Both sides are working aggressively to resolve all outstanding issues as quickly as possible.Read More
