Dear CEA Members,
This document is a summary of gains and losses in the contract as agreed between your negotiators and State of Alaska leadership. Negotiators were able to get many benefits built into the contract or strengthen, most notably COLA increases over all three year, increased promotional steps, health and safety language, greatly strengthened processes for communicating with the State, and a protocol for holding supervisors accountable for missed evaluations.
Negotiations are always a series of compromises, but your team spent more than six months preparing in order to be able to put forward contract language that best represents your needs in the present while caring for the future of CEA. We are satisfied that the tentative agreement reched May 6, 2022, represents the best deal that could have been negotiated for CEA at this time.
If an article is not mentioned in the table below, it has not been changed.
Your negotiating team is very proud of the work done to create such a beneficial contract. Please feel free to reach out to any of us in order to better understand the changes that have been made and what they may mean for you. A .pdf version of the below information is available here.
2021-2022 CEA Negotiators:
Danelle Beck, Angel Collins, Kasey Catalioto, Paul Affatato, Stephen Courtright (APEA), Annie Knight (APEA)
