As announced Oct. 4, MCO is at an impasse in bargaining. MCO has filed a legal documents with the Michigan Civil Service Commission’s impasse panel that outline our arguments.
MCO Legal Director Jeff Foldie will argue our case before the impasse panel. The hearing will probably be the morning of Oct. 31. The hearing is open to the public, so MCO members may attend. As soon as we have confirmation of the exact time and date, we will share details with members. MCO staff is also trying to set up a livestream of the hearing. Stay tuned for more details.
Our primary concern at impasse is the dangerous staffing crisis. MDOC cannot retain officers and cannot recruit enough COs to keep up with vacancies. The MDOC has failed its officers by not addressing this years-long problem. Read more here.
Thank you, members, for your continued support.
