From the Salem Reporter here:
State employees got a win unlike anything they have seen since before the recession with the legislature dedicating $200 million to pay increases.
That money allowed Service Employees International Union Local 503 to negotiate a two-year contract with the state that gives a 10 to 15 automatic pay increase, a 3 percent cost-of-living-adjustment and a freeze on insurance premiums to 24,000 state employees. The contract was agreed upon Friday, but is still being drafted. …
My understanding is that the negotiations for the university’s SEIU staff are separate, and are not going well. I don’t have a recent report on the GTFF bargaining but wouldn’t be surprised if they strike in the fall. Faculty union bargaining starts in January.
