The votes are in. AFSCME Maryland Council 3 voted to ratify its tentative agreement with the State of Maryland. “We won a permanent raise for all employees in the face of an administration that offered NOTHING at the bargaining table,” AFSCME MD reported. Now, the union says, “it’s all hands on deck in Annapolis to win more for our members,” as they plan to “fight even harder for increased wages and stronger rights for public service workers in Maryland.” The next round of wage negotiations begins in September.
