4/16/18

We have no Demands to Bargain at this time.  There were concerns shared at the last UMCC’s that the federal budget for the SHIBA program would not be funded at its current level.  The budget did get funded and there are no anticipated layoffs.  One person from the program currently housed in Yakima will be retiring shortly and the position will be moved to Spokane.  The next scheduled Union Management Team meeting will be April 26th, 2018.
