State Contract Election Happening Now
After sixteen months of negotiations, your Local 6355 bargaining committee reached a tentative agreement with the Missouri Department of Social Services, Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and Missouri Office of Administration for a new, three year long, labor agreement between the Union and the State. Your bargaining committee believes that this is the best agreement that the Union can reach with the state at this time. This agreement builds on the contract that we have worked under since 2010. CWA was able to keep every demand from the state to take protections we hold now out of the new contract and to build in new protections into the Agreement.
CWA Local 6355 members have the right to vote on the contract. Ballots must be received by the elections committee via US mail no later than December 11, 2015. Your ballot mailing will come with directions on completing and mailing your ballot. If you have not received a ballot by mail at home, please contact the elections committee at the union office at (800)575-6355. If you have questions about the Agreement, read it here via the link below or contact a member of the bargaining committee.
