This letter by VSEA Barre Chapter President Sue LaFleche appeared in today’s Times Argus. VSEA thanks Sue for her initiative and help.

"I am writing to let your readers and the public know why “We Support Our State Employees” signs are popping up across Vermont. They are union members of VSEA’s efforts to rally support of Vermonters to protect the services they rely on by supporting the state employees who provide them. We want the state to negotiate a fair contract with its employees.

Displaying a sign in your yard or storefront tells Vermonters you support a fair contract for state employees and you understand the importance of having fully staffed and functioning state agencies and departments. It informs people you reject further attempts by the state or legislators to save money by making additional cuts to services and positions. For many years Vermonters have had to suffer with inadequate or understaffed services due to financial and staffing cuts. This is unacceptable, especially when the demand for services is increasing.

State employees are your family, your friends and your community members. We work so Vermont works for everyone!

If you would like a sign please contact VSEA headquarters at 223-5247.

Thank you for your support.

Suzanne LaFleche
