AFSCME MD: No deal with Hogan
On January 1, the same day Maryland announced the second highest positivity rates, AFSCME Maryland also announced that they had failed to reach an agreement with Governor Hogan.
"We are unwilling to accept less when we deserve more," the union said. AFSCME Maryland president Patrick Moran accused Gov. Larry Hogan’s administration of a pattern of discriminatory negotiation tactics. A majority of the union’s members are women and people of color. AFSCME also accused the Republican governor of playing partisan politics, alleging that while Maryland police unions, including the the State Law Enforcement Officer’s Labor Alliance, were recently granted a pay increase of more than 20% over three years, AFSCME members were offered just a 1-year, 1% raise “contingent on revenue.”
