SEIU 503 held a bargaining press conference this afternoon at the Capital.
The bargaining team announced our intention to accept 8 unpaid furlough days and no COLAs for two years. On top of this, they want to move 2 of the furlough days to this biennium. The state has 11 days to consider this. Our next bargaining day is 23-Feb-2009.
You can read the Statesman Journal article about the offer over on their site.
