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.
