Dear Local 30 members,
I am pleased to report to you that we will return to the bargaining table to resume negotiations for a new National Agreement. Labor and management will begin meeting on April 18th in Oakland.
The sides reached agreement this week to restart the bargaining and work out the terms of the National Agreement together, and to rebuild our Partnership and continue the great work we have done together over the past 20 years.
Local 30’s bargaining team members are: CIC members Marianne Giordano, Annette Baxter and Roger Lester. And observers Jon Larson, Catherine Engler, Michael Ramey and Mark Englehart. Walter Allen continues to be involved as the Interim Executive Director for the Coalition.
There will be much more information coming about National as well as local bargaining. As promised, we will continue to provide updates along the way.
Dear Local 30 Members,
Late last week we learned that the National Labor Relations Board is prepared to issue a favorable decision regarding the charges the unions of the Coalition filed last April. In our charges we alleged that the employer illegally walked out of bargaining with us back in March and then demanded a new Partnership Agreement before they would return to the table. The Coalition filed the charges, gave testimony, and finally the Board has informed the parties of their intent to uphold the positions of the unions. The bargaining must resume and there can be no preconditions placed on bargaining.
Congratulations to the recipients of the 2018 OPEIU Local 30 Scholarship Fund & Student Debt Relief Awards. Each award is in the amount of $1,500.00.
