Conceptual Agreement Reached on Furloughs

Here's the official update from yesterday's bargaining:

July 6, 2009: Conceptual Proposal Reached

After three full days of bargaining, CSUEU reached a conceptual agreement which will provide workload protections, significant layoff mitigation and 24 furlough days during the period of August 1, 2009, to June 30, 2010.

The team believes this agreement will address the concerns presented to us by our members. Once the final language has been written and agreed to, we will post the full text for our members to review.

Within the next few days, we will begin the process of ratification; CSUEU members will have the opportunity to vote on the tentative agreement at their chapter. Members will receive notices of the time and place for balloting via e-mail.

The bargaining team was working on language until after midnight, after a full day of bargaining.
