UNION UPDATE, framework passed to a TA

JPE Union Board

 

Brothers and Sisters,

The Judicial Professional Employees Union is proud to announce that on Friday, we have come to a Tentative Agreement with the Judicial Branch on our Collective Barging Agreement. This has been a long process but we believe we have accomplished a lot of the goals that our members suggested to us over a year ago and have gotten the best contact we could have during these difficult times.

As of today, all 15 SEBAC Union leaders announced that all local contracts are completed. With that a vote was taken to move the signed SEBAC framework in to a Tentative Agreement. The Judicial Professional Employees Union has abstained from the vote.  This was done as we did not feel we should vote either for or against the SEBAC TA without input from our members.  The vote to move the SEBAC framework to a TA has passed. The vote was as follows: 14 for 0 against, 1 abstention.  The State will be making an announcement on Monday at 11am.

In the next couple of week, members of the Judicial Professional Employees executive board will be explaining the individual TA’s we signed to all of you as well as the SEBAC Tentative Agreement  in preparation for an electronic  vote to ratify our contract and vote on SEBAC’s TA. In addition, I will hold a number of conference calls to explain both the JPE contract and the SEBAC TA. Please see the schedule below.  It is import to know, JPE will not be pushing our members on how to vote for SEBAC. We will explain the SEBAC TA and point out how this affects you as individuals. How you vote on SEBAC is an individual decision as the SEBAC TA affects all of us differently.  In contrast, JPE will be seeking support from our members to approve our Judicial Professional Employees Union Contract.  If our members do not ratify our contract we will lose any money we negotiated, improved langue and the 4 year layoff protection clause.  All JPE TA’s will be posted on our website within the next couple of days.

Later this week, I will be sending out an email detailing the electronic voting process. JPE members will have 2 votes, one on the JPE Collective Barging Agreement and one on the SEBAC Tentative Agreement.

Below is the conference call schedule and procedure.
