Still No Salary Steps Proposal from CSU

Our CSU Bargaining Team made progress on significant articles related to Health and Safety and Leaves of Absence during negotiations Feb. 27-28. Our team proposed language on four articles and one appendix, and came to a tentative agreement on one of the articles.

The CSU team didn’t bring a proposal on the salary steps that we know are critical to retaining our experienced Skilled Trades workers, but they did say they hope to bring their modeling on salary steps to the next session.

Next Bargaining Dates: March 12-13

“We are glad to make progress on language, and the ball is in CSU’s court to provide a proposal for step increases and fair pay for Teamsters Skilled Trades workers.”

Jason Rabinowitz, Secretary-Treasurer
