COBANC's Negotiating Committee met (amongst ourselves without OCA) on March 28th to discuss our positions regarding our next contract. The contract would cover the time period of April 2019 to March of 2021. As most of us are aware the O.C.A has already ratified contracts with some of their bargaining units covering this time period and seems interested in having all their employees under contract for the same time periods. Our current contract does not expire until March of 2019, but we will of course listen to anything the O.C.A has to offer. Please speak to your delegate for information about what they have agreed to already with their other bargaining units and to voice your ideas as we prepare to entertain the idea of extending our contract for 2 more years.
