The CWA State Executive Branch Bargaining Committee and the Murphy Administration are in formal negotiations to resolve all legal, contractual and retroactive matters. As members know, our contract expired in July 2015. Our bargaining will cover all issues retroactive to that date.


We have open clothing allowance disputes, litigation around step increases and other issues, and important contract language at stake. Both sides are working aggressively to resolve all outstanding issues quickly.


Bargaining will continue next week and we expect progress to continue until we reach completion.


The patience and solidarity of our CWA membership has bested every unprecedented attack on us during the last eight years. Please support the bargaining committee in this final push. Wear RED on Thursday (especially the next two weeks) and come to your Local worksite and membership meetings.
