Another attack on Michigan unions!
The Michigan Civil Service Commission is scheduled to vote on a proposal to strip Union rights from State of Michigan employees.
Please join us in voicing our outrage! Demand the Commission and Governor Snyder stop the attacks on the citizens and taxpayers of Michigan!
Wednesday, September 20 at 9:00 a.m.
400 S. Pine Street, Lansing

Why is this important to State of Michigan employees?
• Special pay provisions such as Shift Premium, Call Back/On Call pay, CPS/Foster Care rate, Hazard Pay, RN Bonuses and more could be taken with the stroke of a pen.
• Seniority rights could be taken away.
• Management could assign people at will too far away work sites, based on their likes and dislikes.
• Transfer rights would not be guaranteed in union contracts.
• Recall/Layoff/Bumping rights would no longer be in union contracts.
• Shift assignments would be at the discretion of management.
• Overtime assignments would be based on who management wants to do the work.
• Union leave time would no longer be negotiable.
• Negotiated raises that were mutually agreed upon can be taken away.
