Covid-19 Side-Letter Agreement Extended Until July 4 For VSEA Executive Branch Unit Members!

VSEA Executive Director Steve Howard emailed members belonging to the union’s Executive Branch Units (Non-Management, Corrections & Supervisory) this afternoon to let them know that the Scott Administration has agreed to extend the COVID-19 side-letter agreement that provides enhanced wages, benefits and protections to state employees on Vermont’s frontlines, battling COVID-19, providing critical testing and aiding Vermonters in need during the pandemic.

This is very welcome news, because, as of last Friday the Administration was not agreeable to an extension, even after repeated requests to extend from VSEA Bargaining Teams, leaders and staff.

The COVID-19 agreement was also extended to Vermont Judiciary Branch employees.
