Central Washington University reaches contact agreement

The Central Washington University Bargaining Team last night (March 30) reached tentative agreement on a new contract.

It’s a one-year contract that takes effect next year, on July 1, 2012, and runs until June 30, 2013. During the first year of the biennium, from July 1, 2011, to June 30, 2012, the terms and conditions of the current (2009-2011) collective bargaining agreement will apply.

They will take a temporary salary reduction of 3 percent for those making more than $2,500 a month from July 1, 2012, to June 29, 2013, and they won significant improvements in working conditions.

Mail ballots for the CWU ratification vote go out April 5.
