Yesterday the State Journal Register reported that Senator Harmon, AFSCME and other unions were meeting in an effort to determine which state employees would no longer have bargaining rights. We want to assure you that our local union is doing the same. We are working with the Senator to justify the exclusion of our membership. Please keep in mind that Senate Bill 1556 has passed and only affects positions certified after December 2, 2008. It does not matter what date an individual hires into a position but only the date on which the position gained union representation. An overwhelming majority of our members are NOT affected by Senate Bill 1556, regardless we are working in an attempt to exclude as many people as possible from being affected. Please continue to watch your e-mail, blog & Facebook; we will keep you posted on any new developments.
