VSEA Seeks A Union Organizer

No one knows how to talk with a state employee better than a fellow state employee. For this reason, VSEA is urging interested VSEA members to apply.  

The job of the Union Organizer at the Vermont State Employees’ Association is to build the organization by recruiting new members, as well as identifying new activists and leaders and work with these members to develop the skills needed to play an active role in building power through their union. In addition to building new leadership within VSEA, the union organizer is expected to support those members who currently hold leadership positions within the union.

The union organizer must work with members to identify key issues impacting their daily lives, both in and out of the workplace, and engage in the development and execution of an action plan that engages members to take action on improving their existing situation.

Salary range is $53,788.80 to $61,942.40, based on experience.

SAO Unit Members Vote To Ratify New Two-Year Contract

The VSEA Elections, Rules, and Nominating Committee has certified that the VSEA members of the State’s Attorneys’ Offices Bargaining Unit have ratified their tentative agreement on a new, two-year contract that will become effective on July 1, 2024. SAO Unit members made their choice clear as 100% of those casting a ballot voted to approve the settlement negotiated by their bargaining team.

The SAO Unit contact becomes the sixth collective bargaining agreement negotiated by the VSEA since last fall. Members in the Non-Management, Corrections, Supervisory, Defender General, and Judiciary units also approved their respective contract settlements in 2024.

VSEA thanks the State’s Attorneys’ Offices Unit bargaining team for their work to reach a contract settlement that has the overwhelming approval of its members.
