2023 Legislative Session

Jul 18, 2023 9:39:49 AM

The legislative session ended with a couple of bills that will affect our members.

The pension bill changed employee contributions from 6% to 5.5%. This will go into effect on July 1, 2023.

Another bill that affects our contract is that the Sub-Committee of Employee Relations (SER) and the legislature no longer have to vote to approve our new contract. What this means is once MMA gets a tentative agreement (TA) and the membership ratifies it, the new contract will go into effect.
