VSEA VSC Unit Votes To Extend Contract A Year, With Modifications

August 13, 2021

Members of the VSEA Vermont State Colleges Bargaining Team sent the following communication this week to Unit members, announcing agreement on a contract extension: 

The members of the Vermont State Colleges bargaining unit have overwhelmingly voted to ratify a one-year extension of their current collective bargaining agreement.  The extension was effective on July 1, 2021, and will remain in effect through June 30, 2022.  As a result of the extension, all members will receive an approximate 51- cent-per-hour increase to their hourly wage, and will have no changes to health care or retirement. Additionally, all tentative agreements which were reached in late 2019 through early 2020, during the negotiations which occurred prior to the pandemic, will also be incorporated into the agreement. The members overwhelming voted in favor of this agreement. If you have any questions please reach out to a unit officer or a campus negotiator.  

In Solidarity, 
Your Bargaining Team
