Didn't we just settle our contract?

On March 31st, DC37 members voted to ratify a new Economic Agreement, which is a sort of addendum to our other Citywide and Unit contracts, focusing on the broad outlines of the rules we will live under until Nov 6, 2026. However, after each Economic Agreement is ratified, DC37 moves on to begin renegotiating our Unit Contracts, which cover longevity and assignment differentials and rules regarding working conditions for designated groups of workers called “bargaining units”.

That process will start soon, and we want Local 768 to be well prepared. To do that, we need to develop our goals together. This meeting will begin the process of soliciting members' ideas on ways to change our Unit Contracts to better meet our needs, both in ways that change our compensation ('economic' issues) and other ways that change the rules our employers must follow ('non-economic' issues). 

Review our prep-document:

Local 768: Structure and context - This document reviews through the basic composition of our Local membership, the types of contracts we are covered under, and the processes for negotiating them.
