I am tremendously pleased to report that the MSCA was able to resolve the final two issues that were in dispute from the tentative agreement (TA) reached back on July 8th. We reached final resolution on these matters in a meeting with the employer on Monday, August 25th.
The final language of the TA has been agreed to and signatures will be put to paper in the next couple of days. The TA, and an addendum to it, have been posted on the MSCA website and can be viewed at: http://mscaunion.org/contract/
Under the MSCA Constitution, the MSCA Board of Directors will be making a recommendation on whether the membership should vote in favor of ratification. This will take place at its meeting on September 5th. Once the MSCA Board establishes the times, dates and locations for ratification, that information will be forwarded and posted.
