Each week, we’ve introduced you to another member of the Executive Branch Master Bargaining Team. This week, we talked to John Morin, who has served on the last three bargaining teams.
Morin works for the Department of Corrections, as a lieutenant at the Concord facility. He’s been an SEA/SEIU Local 1984 member for 15 years, and is active in the union.
In addition to serving on the Master Bargaining Team, he is the president of Chapter 255, and serves on the State Contract Labor Management Committee, Charge and Trial Board, Sick Leave Committee, Collective Bargaining Senate and Collective Bargaining Advisory Committee.
He said he ran for a spot on the Master Bargaining Team because he wanted to help deliver a fair contract for all state employees, and his experience as a three-time member of the Master Bargaining Team will help him deliver that.
“I have worked in the public and private sectors,” Morin said. “I can listen to ideas and give constructive feedback.”
Morin encouraged his fellow union members to get involved.
“The union is only as good as its membership,” Morin said.
If you’d like to get involved in the Executive Branch master contract bargaining process, a great way you can do so is by joining the Contract Action Team.
As a member of the Contract Action Team you will have the opportunity to receive the most up to date information about negotiations and share it with your co-workers. You will not only keep your co-workers updated, but you will also be able to loop back and bring their feedback to the Master Bargaining Team.
