Contract update 11-2015



State negotiations are around the corner in 2016! CSEA President Danny Donohue will be appointing the Negotiating Team later this spring. If you are interested in participating, please reach out to your CSEA region office for more information. We should all be prepared for another difficult negotiation so it is more important than ever to let your VOICE be heard.
You can do this by:
1. Going online to: and completing the contract survey form that will be available in May.
2. Attending a meeting with the Negotiating Team this summer to discuss your concerns and issues.
3. Joining a contract communications network now that will help spread the word about what is happening in negotiations. Go to

**** Local 602 will have meetings scheduled after work hours to go over the contract and get ideas and suggestions on what should be changed or modified. Remember if you don’t do anything this time, we will be worst off than the last contract. Everyone has a voice and they need to use it NOW. Region 6 is quite large and can really make some noise. If you don’t bother and think that your voice doesn’t matter – read over your contract book. This is what you are going to get. And if you don’t vote – SHAME ON YOU!!!
