With negotiations for the successor agreements beginning in the spring, we are requesting nominations for representatives to serve on the three independent Negotiating Committees.

  • 3)Be in a classification corresponding to the bargaining unit they wish to be nominated for.
  • 4)Submit a Nomination Petition (or have one submitted on their behalf) with the signatures of at least two SLOCEA members from their bargaining unit (nominee’s signature may count toward this requirement).
