(James Hennerty, Dep. Director, CSEA Contract Administration, May 2, 2013)
The CSEA negotiating team met with UCS on May 1st, 2013. UCS delivered their initial contract proposals. Discussions were held. No specific salary-related proposals or compensation matters were proposed or discussed. UCS again brought up their concerns over budget shortfalls this fiscal year and next and their further concern over meeting payroll. They stated that there will be more proposals coming from them. We hope to meet again at the end of May.
