Union Files Charge Against Trial Court

NAGE has filed a charge at the Massachusetts Department of Labor Relations over the Trial Courts’ unilateral action to impose a vaccine requirement upon our members or be tested weekly.

Massachusetts General Law Chapter 150E is clear and express; the Employer has a statutory obligation to bargain in good faith before the implementation of policies that affect terms and conditions of employment. Plain and simple, the Trial Court has violated the Law!!

One would expect that the Judicial Branch of government, at a minimum, adhere to the collective bargaining laws of the Commonwealth!

NAGE’s position will remain firm and clear; the policy sent by the Trial Court last week was not bargained in good faith with the Union, and therefore is not enforceable!

We are committed to keeping you updated as this issue evolves.

Please stay Healthy and Safe,
David Bernard
