Ratification Results

The Memorandum of Agreement between the CBE and Staff Association for new one-year contracts retroactive to September 1, 2014 was ratified by a 98% majority of MAIN body members and 100% of PSS members attending the March 9th ratification meetings.  We are pleased to report that the CBE Trustees unanimously ratified the agreement on March 17th.

The delay in reporting the results of our ratification was at the request of CBE to facilitate the Trustees dealing with their ratification and communication strategy in advance of it going public.

Now that both parties have ratified the agreements, we will be working with CBE to finalize various implementation matters such as the timing and method of retro payments and the retroactive application of other new provisions.  We will provide that information to you as soon as it is available.  Please click on the links below to view copies of the Summary of the Terms of Settlement for both Main Body and PSS Members:
