Local 1359 Contract Update #4
(June, 2007)

Bargaining between the Local and the state of New York on a successor agreement to the one which expired on April 1, 2007 continues to date.

The employer has presented a list of "conceptual demands" to the union but has yet to present concrete proposals. It is our understanding that other state bargaining units have received similar proposals.

The employer has also provided a very general initial response to the Local's comprehensive list of contractual demands. Further information gathering and discussions between the parties concerning all proposals are ongoing.

As previously indicated, the Local's negotiating committee has worked diligently to date to achieve a beneficial new agreement on behalf of all members and is prepared to work as rapidly as we can with the employer to achieve a mutually satisfying successor agreement.

Updates on the status of negotiations will be periodically provided to all members as relevant information becomes available. If you are unable to attend a general membership meeting, please check the Local's website at www.local1359.org and look under the "News Headlines" column for the latest information.

The Local 1359 Negotiating Team consists of President Ralph F. Carbone, Vice-President Dennis Ifill, Treasurer Darryl Adams, Secretary Charmaine Hardaway and Executive Board member Mushtaq Ali. From District Council 37 are negotiator Michele Trester, legal counsel Alan Brown and benefits expert Willie Chang.
