Commissioner Santiago signed the new Memorandum of Agreement on the day contract on April 10, 2019. The following day the BHE submitted to Governor Baker a request that the day contract be funded. We do not anticipate that the governor will reject the revised contract.
We will inform members when we have gubernatorial approval and a request for funding is sent to the legislature.
Thank you for your support during one of the more contentious bargaining rounds, one that rivaled the attempts by management 20 years ago to eliminate tenure. That round also took two years to settle.
