Eastern Washington Bargaining Update 6/10/16
Tentative agreements reached on 24 contract articles
The Eastern Washington University Bargaining Team wrapped up its first week of bargaining with a two-day session Wednesday (June 8) and Thursday (June 9).
• Management responded to our proposals that our team presented on the first day of bargaining June 6.
• We were able to reach tentative agreement on 24 articles. Some articles reflect status quo language, with neither party suggesting changes. Others reflect changes to existing language for clarity and process improvement.
• To date we have not shared compensation but will continue to work articles of the contract that contain no economics.
• Our next bargaining dates are the July 6, 7 and 8. We also added several dates in August to engage in economic discussions. We were already scheduled to meet Aug. 1 and 2. We have added Aug. 11, 12, 22, and 23.
