MADISON, Wis. (4/29/13)--CUNA Mutual Group and the Office and Professional Employees International Union Local 39, which represents about 700 office workers at CUNA Mutual, have reached a tentative agreement on a three-year contract.
The agreement covers three years, from April 1, 2013, through March 31, 2016. The company and the union have been negotiating since mid-February. The original contract, which expired March 31, was extended several times before the tentative agreement was reached Thursday.
It is now up to the union membership to vote on the agreement.
"We are very pleased that the company's and union's frank discussions resulted in a tentative agreement that each of us strongly supports," said Rick Uhlmann, senior manager, media relations at CUNA Mutual Group. "We believe it reflects the most important issues on both sides."
