The Unit 12 negotiating team met with the state for the third time, Tuesday, October 25, during a mediation in the face of the impasse. The parties remain divided on the amount of general salary increases, the amount of the contribution of medical retirees (OPEB) and the duration of the agreement. On Wednesday 26 October, we again filed our request for an impasse with the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB). PERB has five days to grant or reject our request for an impasse. Our fight for a fair and equitable treaty continues. Janus` recent decision of the Supreme Court has no influence on the negotiation process. All members of Bargaining Unit 2 will continue to be represented by CASE as the designated representative. .
