Bargaining Updates

Final Update (September 10, 2020)

Negotiations concluded September 1, 2020 for the 2021-2023 Collective Bargaining  Agreement.  WFSE/AFSCME “The Eastern Washington University” classified staff tentative

agreement for the 2021-2023 collective bargaining agreement provided for protection of 
the status quo.

Impacts of COVID-19   
COVID-19 has decimated budgets of both our General Government and all Higher Education.  Your bargaining team was faced with unprecedented budget constraints and active layoffs during the bargaining of the next contract.  With facts of layoffs and budget cuts the team decided the best course of action was to negotiate an extension of the 2019-2021 CBA.  

Because of these achievements, your Eastern Washington University Bargaining Team recommends that you ACCEPT this Agreement and strongly encourages your participation in the ratification process. We believe you will agree that holding the line on healthcare and maintaining steps were good achievements during these unprecedented times. We encourage you to exercise your right to vote and ratify this Agreement.

 Here are links to the full message and summary from your Bargaining Team, the Tentative Agreement and online voting instructions.
