House Passes Supplemental Budget Authorizing New Agreements
The Massachusetts House of Representatives passed a supplemental budget today containing language authorizing the new collective bargaining agreements between the Trial Court and OPEIU, Local 6, Units J6C and J6P; the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds and OPEIU, Local 6; the Hampden Registry of Deeds and OPEIU, Local 6 and the Middlesex South Registry of Deeds and OPEIU, Local 6. The language, which authorizes payment under each new contract, is required to comply Mass. Gen. Laws chapter 150E, section 7.
While the Massachusetts House passed the language today, the Massachusetts Senate was not able to take the matter up as it had already adjourned for the day. It is expected that the Massachusetts Senate will pass the supplemental budget soon. In the meantime, OPEIU would like to thank Speaker Robert DeLeo and House Ways and Means Chairman Brian Dempsey as well as Minority Leader Brad Jones for their efforts on this matter.
We will keep you posted with further updates as the supplemental budget progresses.
Post and circulate.
