Delaware Expands Collective Bargaining Rights for CWA State Workers!

Last week, Delaware Governor John Carney signed SB-8 to expand collective bargaining rights for all state worker bargaining units, including Social Workers/Case Managers in the Division of Health and Human Services who are members of CWA Local 13101. Previously, some units were limited by law to bargain over working conditions only. This bill allows workers to bargain for better wages and other compensation. The new legislation takes effect January 2020. The Delaware AFL-CIO and CWA Local 13101 were instrumental in the passage of the bill.
