The State Capitol is where many decisions are made about how state employees are expected to do their work, the pay and benefits you will receive, and what rights we can secure. There is a lot of work to be done in 2019.
Some of the legislative priorities we have for 2019 include:
- Securing an appropriate raise
- Strengthening the Executive Order which founded our organization and ensuring state employees always have a voice in their jobs
- Re-implementing step pay through a Predictive Pay Measure
At the Planning Session we’ll talk about these goals and how we can work together, motivate our membership, and drive our members to action. But beyond our legislative goals, we’ll also talk about how to hold politicians accountable and make sure they stand up for state workers, like they committed to doing before the elections.
We will need to see legislators’ words turn into action: introducing and passing legislation that benefits state workers and therefore the state as a whole.
We know this will be a productive session for us as union members and state workers. Join us in the Springs to ensure your opinion is included in our plans.
