PEF President Ken Brynien said the union is prepared to meet with the state to discuss how it can alter the tentative contract agreement that members rejected.
“I heard the governor’s willingness to have open communications with us and I am encouraged the governor is willing to hear our ideas. At this time, we see no evidence to suggest that a revote would result in a different outcome.
“PEF is anxious to discuss with the governor’s negotiators how we an reach an agreement the PEF membership would be willing to ratify, while preserving state services and meeting the savings the state requires.
Our team remains in place, ready, and willing to meet with the governor’s negotiators. We are now in the process of making those arrangements,” Brynien said.
