PEF’s PS&T contract team:
​Contract power rises from PEF unity

YOUR PEF CONTRACT TEAM, PREPARING FOR PS&T BARGAINING — The newly appointed contract team takes a break from training September 12 to pose for a group photo. Members of the team, who work at various state agencies, will attend membership meetings to get input as to what members want in their next contract. The current agreement with the state expires April 1, 2019. Negotiations for a new contract with the team from the Governor’s Office of Employee Relations will kick-off in January. — Photo by Deborah A. Miles
