(Apr 16, 2012) Voting for the new 2012 – 2014 MOU concluded today at noon. The proposed MOU was accepted by the majority of PLEA members who voted. The new MOU will go into effect on July 1, 2012, with the restorations effective the first pay period in July. PLEA would like to thank all of the members who came by the office for a second time to cast a ballot in this crucial process.
The PLEA board, along with the majority of the membership, agreed that taking the fight forward without a positive fact-finder’s report to back us would not be in the best interest of the membership. This was the first time in the 37 year history of PLEA that we have gone to a fact-finder. If circumstances dictate, PLEA will not hesitate to take this course of action in the future. PLEA would also like to thank the membership for their support during this process.
