PEBB meeting cancelled, but that's not stopping us

The Public Employees Benefits Board cancelled its Nov. 17 meeting when they heard there might be more green shirts in the audience. But that’s not stopping us.

Join us instead tomorrow, Nov. 17, 1-3 p.m., at the state Capitol, in the Columbia Room on the first floor. We’ll talk about where we are in health care negotiations and perhaps take a little walk to an important elected official’s office.  [Learn more about the Health Care Action Team]

  • GENERAL GOVERNMENT. The General Government Bargaining Team returns to the table today and tomorrow.

  • THE EVERGREEN STATE COLLEGE. The TESC Bargaining Team negotiates Nov. 18.
  • UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON. UW contract mediation takes place Nov. 17 and 22.
  • COMMUNITY COLLEGE COALITION. In the past two sessions, the bargaining team for the coalition of 12 Community Colleges has reached tentative agreement on three more articles: 17 – Suspended Operations; 37 – Mandatory Subjects; and 39 – Seniority.
