We are meeting with the State next Friday, June 14. After our joint session, the State indicated they would like to meet earlier than Friday to respond to our proposal package. Stay tuned!

Contract negotiations are in full swing, with both sides of the bargaining table having passed proposals. Keep an eye out for ways to get involved and add YOUR voice to these negotiations!

CALL TO ACTION: 

Let the Governor know that we are united in our demand to reach a fair contract NOW by signing this photo petition. The photos will be published after a majority of rank-and-file scientists sign the petition. 

Power hour next week, Monday, June 10, 6-7pm

We will be going over the  State’s June 5 economic proposals and our CAPS-UAW June 6 counters. Register to attend the Power Hour here.
