Central Michigan University and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 1568 reached a tentative agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement Friday evening. AFSCME Local 1568 represents the university's 191 service maintenance employees, which include custodial, groundskeepers, skilled trades, warehouse workers and others.
The current contract, scheduled to expire June 30, 2017, was extended to July 15. This will allow time for the union bargaining committee and union members to hold a ratification meeting.
Details of the tentative agreement will be released once members have ratified the contract.
