The session began with the Administration’s Bargaining Team presenting their counter on Article IV: Benefits and Leaves. We then broke for caucus.
The sticking point in this article remains –
Granting library access to retired NTTs
Right now, the Administration’s team is proposing that retired NTT’s access the library through a process that would be tied to a specific project, require department and upper administration approval, and need to be renewed each year.
We are asking that they create a retired NTT designation so that more and continuing labor is not required from our members, individual departments, or the administration.
We’ll find out next session which solution they support.
In fact, next week is a BIG one.
There is a strong possibility that tentative agreements could be reached on articles that would decide the following and more for our next contract:
- Extra pay for extra work
- Salary raises for promotion
- Retirement access to the library
This time of year is packed, but we need people in the room.
When their side sees members in the room, they know our membership supports our stances, which helps them move closer to an agreement that most benefits us.
