New details are emerging in the tentative labor deal between Oregon's largest public employee union and the state.
The Statesman Journal newspaper reports that under the two-year-contract, union members would NOT be forced to take any unpaid days off.
Also, Service Employees International Union members would continue to pay 5 percent of health care premiums.
They would receive modest cost-of-living raises in the next two years.
Also, the state will continue to subsidize health care costs for low-wage and part-time workers.
The union represents 19,000 workers statewide.
Over the weekend, SEIU members voted to authorize a strike if no agreement could be reached.
Instead, delegates will meet in Salem next week to discuss details of the agreement.
