After a summer of turmoil, angst, layoff notices, and threatened program closings, SEBAC leaders approved a new Agreement which covers health and pension benefits for all state employees.
State employees voted 26,161 in favor and 9,620 opposed to ratification. Further, 32 out of 34 individual bargaining units, including the 4Cs, also approved the wage concession and job security agreements. The 4Cs Agreement freezes wages for two years, followed by 3% raises plus a step in 2013, 2014, and 2015. It also provides job security for most 4Cs members for four years.
