Collective Bargaining

The Collective Bargaining Agreement

The Collective Bargaining Agreement is negotiated every year (unless both parties waive that right). Other articles may be opened during those negotiations, depending on agreements that were reached earlier. All articles are open for negotiation at least every three years. It is possible, therefore, to have a CBA that has certain articles that have been negotiated and updated while the rest of the CBA remains in force. For instance, in the past, the 2010-2012 CBA (the "handshake book") had all the current articles in it, with one supplement (Article 10, Employee Performance Evaluations) that superseded it.

The ground rules for bargaining that were agreed upon by both parties on October 20, 2022 are available here.
