Dear Voting Member of Bargaining Unit 2:
CASE is pleased to announce that the membership has ratified the Side Letter Agreement which will remain in effect until June 30, 2022. Until a successor Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") is reached with the State, all other terms of the July 2019 - June 2020 MOU will remain in effect. Approximately 60% of all eligible Voting Members participated in the voting process and overwhelmingly approved the Side Letter Agreement with a 95% “Yes” vote. The membership's support of the Side Letter Agreement reflects the fact that most Voting Members preferred a Side Letter Agreement which provided mitigating factors to offset the 9.23% pay cut. We understand that there is more work to do while negotiating a successor MOU so that we may improve family leave, equalize judicial and attorney salaries, and establish competitive salaries for CASE members that will keep the best legal professionals working for the State.
As always, your support of CASE and your colleagues in Bargaining Unit 2 is greatly appreciated.
Sincerely, The CASE Board of Directors
