AFSCME Council 13 ratifies 3-year contract with Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

Harrisburg, PA (September 6, 2016) – On August 3, Council 13’s State Policy Committee unanimously approved a three-year contract proposal.  AFSCME Council 13 moved the vote to all of its 192 state locals.  AFSCME members in Pennsylvania passed the three year contractual agreement 6-1. A local listing of the results will be included in the Summer 2016 Issue of the Council 13 Connection.

Under Senate Bill 644 passed on April 6, 2016, the contract will now go to the Commonwealth’s Independent Fiscal Office to conduct a cost analysis of the collective bargaining agreement.
