The appointments to the MMA Negotiations Team for the 2015-2017 MMA contract have been finalized.
The MMA Executive Committee approved the following supervisors to represent MMA members at this year’s contract negotiations:
Lyla Burkman, Health
Jeff Cassidy, Transportation
Bruce Daniel, Transportation
Randy Gordon, Human Services
Dean Hagen, Corrections
Kathy Hanson, Labor & Industry
Lonnie Lilly, Natural Resources
Jim Manson, Revenue
Kevin Monio, Corrections
Peter O’Grady, MnSCU
Michael Parker, Public Safety
Mark Parsley, MnSCU

Gary Kloos, Robyn Cousin, My Lee and MMA Attorneys Ron Rollins, Zaidee Martin and Joel Button will provide staff support to the Negotiations Team.
The Negotiations Team will review all the contract survey data and associated comments received from the MMA members and will draft MMA’s contract proposals in preparation for face-to-face negotiations with the State’s management representatives. We anticipate that negotiations will begin earlier than the last round of negotiations; however, initial meeting dates have yet to be scheduled.
Further information will be provided as it becomes available.
