CBA Negotiations

Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) 

Management has reopened POPA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).  Last year, POPA finished negotiation of the ground rules.  We have received management’s proposals and are now working on our proposals.

Ground Rules for negotiation. 

 

On 11/14, POPA's legal counsel Richard Hirn hosted a webinar explaining the structure of CBA negotiations. Richard covered topics like how long negotiations will last, what can be negotiated, legal remedies for bad faith bargaining, and the like. 

Here is a summary of that talk, for those who might have missed it or need a refresher: Structure of CBA Negotiations

CBA proposals and informational sessions

As POPA prepares to bargain a new collective bargaining agreement covering all POPA employees, we have information for POPA-covered employees.

  • POPA will be providing an email for POPA-covered employees to provide feedback on management’s proposals.

There is no other time available for the Richard Hirn talk on November 14 discussed in #3 or the CBA Informational Sessions occurring in the next 3 weeks discussed in #4.

Please note that these sessions must be viewed on a personal device because they are being hosted by Zoom.  You can register for the sessions on your government UL or personal device using a personal email or work email.
