Minnesota Medical Solutions - Proposed Extension With Bonus and Extra Holiday
Minnesota Medical Sulutions and the Union Negotiating Committee reached an agreement on an extension of the current collective bargaining agreement on Monday June 22, 2020. The employer proposed an extension of the current agreement with bonuses to all employees and an extra holiday. The bonus amounts provided by the employer are sufficient to cover the additional cost of health insurance for employees who are covered under the Union's healthcare Plan. The additional personal holiday is available for workers through the end of the year. Both sides had hoped that significant legislative and regulatory changess for the Medical Cannabis Industry would happen this legislative cycle - but that was not the case. It is anticipated that 2021 could bring the changes the industry seeks. The extension would move the expiration of the Agreement to May 1, 2021.
The offer from the employer comes with Union Committee recomendation to vote YES to ACCEPT.
Ratification is being conducted by mail ballot. Voting information and Ballots have been mailed to members. Ballots should be mailed back no later than July 1, 2020. Ballots are scheduled to be counted July 8, 2020.
