From the virtual State House:
“In yet another major victory in the ongoing pension fight, your union— the VSEA— has secured legislative support for a balanced Pension Taskforce. The Pension Taskforce will have six voting members from the three affected labor unions, and six voting members who are not members of those unions. This means your voice won’t be able to be ignored on this crucial panel.
A final vote by the Committee of Conference will occur via e-mail later today, but the members of the Committee agreed on the balanced proposal in their meeting this morning. The next steps will be the Vermont House of Representatives and Senate adopting the Conference Committee report, and then sending the final version of the pension bill, H. 449, to the Governor.”
