JUDICIARY UNIT MEMBERS VOTE TO RATIFY NEW TWO-YEAR CONTRACT

The VSEA Elections, Rules, and Nominating Committee has certified that the VSEA members of the Judiciary Bargaining Unit have ratified their contract settlement agreement on a new, two-year contract that will become effective on July 1, 2024.

The Judiciary Unit contact becomes the sixth collective bargaining agreement negotiated by the VSEA since last fall.  Members in the Non-Management, Corrections, Supervisory, and Defender General units approved their respective contract settlements in 2024 and the State’s Attorneys’ Offices Unit membership will soon be voting on ratification of their negotiated tentative agreement.

VSEA thanks the Judiciary Unit bargaining team for their work to reach a contract settlement that has the approval of its members.

Soon, your VSEA staff may be reaching out to ask you to call your senator and tell them to vote to pass the bill.
