Update 7-18-18 Regarding Negotiations
The BOS did go into closed session yesterday, July 17, 2018 and the County presented EDCEA’s last proposal which is shown in detail in Update # 4. As is normal in negotiations, we will hear back from the County as to whether they accept modify or reject our proposal . Once we hear from them, your Negotiation Team will meet to discuss what the county has presented. This back and forth exchange of proposals is the very essence of negotiations. Once the Team feels they have received the best offer we are going to get from the County, the proposal will be taken out for a vote by you the members, the final decision is yours.
In the meantime, we are awaiting to hear from the County Negotiator. We will continue to update you.
AFSCME’s 43rd International Convention kicked off on Monday, July 16, 2018.
