CSEA has begun negotiating successor agreements with the state of Connecticut over 7 state bargaining unit contracts that are set to expire on June 30, 2016. These negotiations follow months of listening sessions, contract surveys, and the formation of negotiating committees.

In order to win a fair contract we are going to need to be ready to mobilize to fight at the capitol in the coming months. Stay tuned.
