April 18, 2018:
Working through the day yesterday, VSEA’s Judiciary Unit Bargaining Team and the Court Administrator tentatively agreed to a new, two-year contract that will mirror the wage and benefit package just imposed on the VSEA Executive Branch Bargaining Teams.
The Team did achieve some impressive gains at the table, including: first-time hourly pay of 60 cents for "Relief from Abuse" stand-by assignments, starting in year two; and improvements to overtime and to the Unit’s designated education and development fund.
Unit and Team Chair Margaret Crowley is thanking the Team and all Judiciary Unit members for their solidarity throughout a months-long, tough process.
Judiciary Unit members will vote soon on the tentative agreement.
