Today Court members tallied the votes and CEMA members passed 98% to 2% our tentative agreement with the Court. This passage grants a 3% raise in salary effective February 1, 2016 with another 2% effective February 1, 2017. The total term is 17 months and includes additional features such as Ready Assignment pay (also known as on-call), expanded Educational Reimbursement amounts and categories and NO take aways. The tentative agreement language can be found HERE. Many thanks to the bargaining team and all our members who participated as subject matter experts, filled out the survey and provided feedback during the roadshows. Also thanks goes out to Court Administration for a professional bargaining experience. Expect to see future articles with the full contract and an announcement from the court on the Pilot Telework Program.
