Friday January 29, 2021 our team met virtually for the assembly, along with almost every local in the state and then went into Unit caucus’ with DOT’s from around the state. We read through over 100 proposals from every agency that AFSCME represents. The proposals are for wages, health insurance, OT pay, shift differentials, boot/clothing allowances, scheduling etc. This is the first step in the long road of negotiations. The wage articles and health insurance are deferred to a separate committee. We will not post any money issues and or health insurance issues on this site. You can go AFSCMEMN.ORG and sign up for member link to get the latest updates.
