The Special Edition 2022 CAPE Newsletter is available now!

This has been a busy year for our union, and so much has been accomplished! As we come to the close of the year, we take a moment in our newsletter to reflect on the journey and success we have had as a union over the last twelve months.

We’re excited to officially release the e-version of the newsletter today and have mailed a printed hard copy to all CAPE members.

CAPE members have made our voices heard loud and clear. All six CAPE bargaining units have overwhelmingly voted 93% YES to ratify our strong new contract.

Our ratification vote is the culmination of weeks of mail-in voting from CAPE members and nearly a year of negotiations lead by our 2022 CAPE Bargaining Team. Our new three-year contract not only protects our wages and working conditions, but also includes the largest one-year salary increase since 2006, brand new telework protections, and much more.

Our New CAPE Contract Will Include:
