Negotiations begin soon, so now is the time to let the State know, as an essential employee during the Pandemic, you deserve to be rewarded for your hard work in very hazardous conditions.

Once we prevail in the Recertification Election taking place October 13-27, 2020, we quickly will be shifting into our NEGOTIATION PREPARATION MODE. As essential employees, you were asked to work in some very dangerous conditions, so now is the time to make sure you are properly compensated for your hard work.

We can send a message that State Employees want and should be fairly compensated for their hard work during this pandemic by overwhelmingly winning Recertification by a large margin. This will assure, that you and your Union (UE Local 893-Iowa United Professionals) will have a place at the negotiations table in December.
