The State and the Coalition have met four more times for contract negotiations and we have made progress in reaching some tentative agreements. At our last meeting on July 25, each coalition group met individually with the State’s lead negotiator, each Agency’s management representative and representatives from the Office of Financial Management to discuss individual economic proposals. Hopefully at our next scheduled contract negotiations on Aug. 22, the State will be ready with their response to these economic proposals. Stay tuned!
