    Negotiations concluded April 30th for the 2019-2021 SPSCC Exempt Collective Bargaining Agreement.

    The AFSCME/WFSE South Puget Sound Community College Exempt Staff tentative agreement for the 2021-2023 contract achieves several major goals identified by the bargaining unit as priority items:

    • The Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) ensures delivery of any Cost of Living Allowances passed by the state legislature over the biennium – See Article 40; Shared Split of Budget Close: Approx. $1,000 each for 2021; - See Article 40; Expanded definition of family member for paid sick leave; - See Article 14;  Standardized and eased process for reimbursement on employer-cancelled vacations; - See Article 13; Extended discrimination protections; - See Article 2; Ability to file a grievance for Employer violations of contractual rights; - See Article 31; Plus there were notable gains to other non-economic articles.
    • The contract HOLDS THE LINE ON HEALTH CARE COSTS with the current 85/15 premium rate. You will continue to pay 15 percent of your health insurance premiums.

    Because of these achievements, your South Puget Sound Community College Exempt Bargaining Team recommends that you ACCEPT this Agreement.

    In Feb. 2019, the journalists at the Hartford Courant formed a union to preserve and strengthen their newspaper after many years of devastating cuts. But two years after organizing, they still don’t have a contract and the Courant is now at risk of being sold to Alden Global Capital, a hedge fund with a reputation for destroying local papers.

    The Courant NewsGuild is rallying to draw attention to the crisis facing the newspaper. Hartford and Connecticut need the Courant! 

    What: Union members and community stakeholders will rally in support of local news and the Hartford Courant and will stand together in solidarity against Alden Global Capital, the self-dealing, slash-and-burn hedge fund seeking to buy the newspaper. On May 21, the directors of Tribune Publishing, the Courant’s corporate parent, will vote on a potential purchase of the chain by Alden, a bad actor that has a history of sucking the life out of local newspapers. We oppose this sale and will continue fighting for civic-minded, local owners even if Alden acquires the Courant.

    When: 1 p.m. Saturday May 15

    Where: State parking lot at Broad Street and Capitol Avenue, next to our former building at 285 Broad Street 

     

    Timeline: 

    12:30 p.m. Organizers arrive to set up 
    1 p.m. Rally begins. Passing out flyers and posters.
    1:15 p.m Speakers begin
    1:45 p.m. Group lines the sidewalk in front of the Courant
    2 p.m. Rally ends. Passing out flyers to people on their way out. 

    Confirmed speakers:

    • U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (contact: Chris Collibee, 860-729-3589, [email protected]
    • Sal Luciano, president of Connecticut AFL-CIO
    • Other lawmakers including Matt Lesser, were (or will be contacted.) Also I think we are inviting Luke Bronin to speak on the impact cuts at the Courant have on Hartford news coverage. I believe Chris Keating also contacted Tom Swan, though not sure if he will speak.
