Bargaining Update #1

At the March 21-22 CSU Board of Trustees Meeting, the Committee on Collective Bargaining adopted Initial Proposals for a Successor Collective Bargaining Agreement with APC. When I addressed the Committee, I stated Unit 4 is losing qualified and experienced members to K-12, community colleges, and other higher education institutions and APC is looking forward to bargaining with the CSU on improving our working conditions.

To view both the CSU and APC Initial Proposals, please visit the APC Labor Relations website, and read the March 20 posting CSU Counters With Its Own Proposals. Our APC proposals are listed in the February 24 posting. APC and the CSU are exchanging dates for the Bargaining Teams to meet. We will keep you informed of any developments as our meetings with the CSU unfold.

In Union,

Patrick Choi APC President
