Contract Negotiations

MMA’s contract negotiations with the state.




MMA’s last contract negotiation meetings with MMB were August 8 - 9. During those sessions, our team continued to review proposals from both sides as well as convened in small groups to discuss the overtime provisions in the contract.


Many MMA members are asking why MAPE and AFSCME members are voting on their contracts and MMA is still in negotiations. The fact is MMB sets the bargaining dates with each respective bargaining unit; therefore, we are working within the dates provided to us. As we continue discussions with the State, our team is working hard clarifying and enhancing proposals that have the greatest impact for our membership.


The next bargaining sessions are scheduled for September 20 - 21. We will provide an update after them.


Nothing new to report from the July 19 session.

This process is really slow. We'll share an update when we have something new.


2023 - 2025 Bargaining Kick Off

The MMA bargaining team met with the state for the first time on Thursday, July 13. The two groups exchanged opening proposals (see attachments). As you will notice, the state did not provide MMA any financial proposals. This is disappointing because we feel the state had sufficient time to prepare for negotiations since they set the schedule for bargaining. The next time the two parties will meet is Wednesday, July 19.
