I’m writing to you to give you an update on the contract talks that began this week.
The formal negotiations for the PS&T contract between PEF and the Governor’s Office of Employee Relations (GOER) took place Wednesday, April 15. Both teams came well-prepared and enthusiastic to tackle the contract proposals. At the meeting, we presented our conceptual proposal which is focused on economic gain, the re-professionalism of PEF and a work life/home life balance. We reached agreement on ground rules for the negotiations and we scheduled five additional days for negotiations over the next few weeks.
As we continue to meet, I will keep you informed of our progress.
