Rep. Jimenez: It is more important now than ever that AFSCME and the Administration Return to the Negotiating Table

Rep. Jimenez Statement on the AFSCME vote to authorize a strike:
“With the news out this morning that AFSCME members have voted to authorize a strike, it is more important now than ever before for both sides to return to the negotiating table as quickly as possible to come to an agreed solution to the employee contract. I have been urging both the Administration and the union to return to the table for the past year and believe that is still the best way to end this standoff. An employee strike would be detrimental to our local economy, to families across the 99th district, and taxpayers throughout the state who rely on services. It is my hope that this vote does not result in an actual strike and both sides can return to the negotiating table to come to a finalized contract for state employees.”
