AFSCME, Commonwealth sign three-year state employee contract

AFSCME Council 13 and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania signed a 3-year contract for state employees today.

Council 13 Executive Director David Fillman and Pennsylvania Secretary of Administration Sharon Minnich, as well as Rank-and-File AFSCME members, First-Level Supervisors and representatives from the Commonwealth, signed the Master Agreement and Master Memorandum, making the three-year agreement final.

The contract was ratified by Council 13’s State Policy Committee in August of 2016, and passed by Council 13 members by a ratio of 6:1.

“I am proud of what the AFSCME negotiating team accomplished. The contract was ratified overwhelmingly, which means the team did a good job of addressing the concerns of their sisters and brothers,” Fillman said.

“Organized labor is going to be facing some challenges coming from the Pennsylvania legislature, as well as from Washington, but it is good to have this agreement in place for the next three years.”
