The SHARE Negotiating Team is proud and happy to announce that we have a tentative agreement with UMass Memorial for a 2-Year Contract. It will go into effect if SHARE members vote Yes.
We encourage you to VOTE YES to ratify this contract on December 20!
The raises in the tentative contract are solid. We are holding onto our health insurance and pension. Equally important, SHARE members told the SHARE Negotiating Team -- in the survey, on the poster, and in many conversations -- that being more respected and having more of a say would improve their day-to-day experience. This contract makes real progress in that direction.
Please continue to the SHARE Contract Agreement Website for the full announcement, as well as details about raises, benefits, Labor Management Partnership, Unit Based Teams, and more. You can also find a listing of Contract Information Meetings. (Information about the specific times and vote locations for the December 20th Ratification is on the way, too.)
SHARE members made it happen! Thank you for your enthusiasm, participation, and support.
