MA Legislature Authorizes State Contracts

The State legislature has voted to authorize the recently ratified contracts for Units 1,3 and 6, as well as MassDOT Units A and D and the Trial Court.

The authorizations were included in a FY21 Closeout Supplemental Budget that has been transmitted to the Governor's desk for signature. Governor Baker now has 10 days to review the bill. Once the legislation is signed by the Governor, the state can beginning implementing the economic provisions contained in the agreements. 

NAGE will provide you with the expected implementation timeline once Governor Baker has signed this bill into law.

We would like to thank and congratulate all of the leaders and members who worked hard in the midst of difficult circumstances, made more challenging by a global pandemic, to deliver a strong contract that honors the work that our members do every day to keep the Commonwealth running! 

Stay tuned for more information over the next week.
