Jan. 21 Day of Action: buses coming!

Can't make it to Helena for the Day of Action? You can still take part: E-mail members of the House Appropriations Committee and say, "Please support HB 13, the state pay plan." You can e-mail the whole committee from this link.


MEA-MFT members from all over Montana will come to Helena January 21, 2013, for the State Pay Plan Day of Action. Join them!


The event begins at 10:00 a.m. at Jefferson School, just a block west of the state capitol in Helena (1023 Broadway).


Participants will team up to talk to legislators about the state pay plan. The legislature must pass the plan, contained in House Bill 13, in order to go into effect.


HB 13 contains a 5% base pay increase for all state employees each of the next two years, plus a 10% increase in the employer's contribution to health insurance.


Buses are coming for the Day of Action from Missoula, Billings/Bozeman, Butte/Deer Lodge/Anaconda.
