MA Legislature Authorizes Trial Court Contracts

The State legislature has voted to authorize the recently ratified contract between NAGE and the Trial Court. Because the Trial Court was late in transmitting the contract documents, the supplemental budget needed to be amended in order to add the Trial Courts authorization. NAGE was successful in lobbying the Senate to amend the budget and the House to concur with the Senate Amendment. 

The authorization is now included in the 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 begin implementing the economic provisions contained in the agreements.  We will provide the expected implementation timeline once Governor Baker has signed the 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.
