Brothers and Sisters,
As you are aware the state budget process has reached the final stretch. earlier this week the HFC voted to approve the budget and send it to the floor for consideration. As the budget process continues on will keep you informed.
Also earlier this week Judge Taft Carter gave final approval to the pension settlement agreement which we voted on earlier this year. The settlement is now in the hands of the General Assembly and is expected to pass.
Congratulations to the newest member of the House of Representatives Carol Hagan McEntee. After her victory Tuesday night she is now the representative from district 33. Thank you to all who live in d-33 took the time to vote. We have a good, hard working advocate for working men and women in Carol. Congrats and thank you to VP Rose for all his efforts in helping to get Rep. McEntee elected.
A warm welcome to all the new members recently hired into Local 528, and a sincere thank you to everyone for your hard work, commitment and dedication to our work as well as each other. It is because of that commitment and dedication we have survived brutal attacks on workers (especially public employees) and continue to grow our Union!
