URGENT: Ask legislators to stick to Retirement Reform Task Force Report

Posted by: Jennifer Gomori Posted date: November 27, 2017


It’s time to crank up phone calls and emails. Both the Michigan House and Michigan Senate will introduce “OPEB reform” bills simultaneously on Tuesday morning. These bills go beyond the Retirement Reform Task Force report.

We don’t have bill numbers yet so our message is simple: “STICK TO THE TASK FORCE REPORT”

The task force report is a document unanimously approved by labor, management and the private sector. These bills involve all of us, active municipal employees and retirees.

Please contact these legislators and ask them to vote against the OPEB reform bills:
House Speaker Tom Leonard – 517-373-1778 – tomleonard@ house.mi.gov
Majority Leader Lee Chatfield – 517-373-2629 – leechatfield@ house.mi.gov
