COVID-19 Agreement Status Alert!

The COVID-19 Side Letter Agreement between the Scott Administration and VSEA​’s Executive Branch Units is set to expire on July 4th. The VSEA remains agreeable to extending the COVID-19 Side Letter Agreement. I am writing to let you know that, at this moment, the State has not agreed. The Administration has said it is not inclined to extend the COVID-19 Side Letter Agreement in its current form. VSEA believes that the provisions of the current Side Letter are as important and relevant now as they were when first agreed. Today, VSEA again requested that the Administration reconsider and agree with VSEA to extend the current COVID-19 Side Letter Agreement. We await the response.

Please direct your questions about how this impacts your particular agency or department to your Department of Human Resources Representative.
