UPDATE 4/2/2021: Saturday Pension Rally In Burlington Cancelled!
 
Because of Speaker Krowinski’s surprise announcement this morning that pension reform is off the table for this legislative session, VSEA leadership has decided to cancel tomorrow’s canvassing and rally in Burlington, scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
 
VSEA is thanking everyone who had planned to come out to support state employees and teachers in their fight to protect pensions. It’s good to know that when the need to mobilize arises, VSEA members and retirees are ready to respond.
 
The event in Montpelier at 11:00 a.m. tomorrow is still happening, as of this time.
 
Note: The Springfield Chapter is still rallying this evening but it is now a “thanks for the solidarity and support” event. Springfield’s rally tomorrow is cancelled.

CALLING ON MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES…

 
What: RALLY AND CAR CARAVAN AROUND SPEAKER KROWINSKI’S DISTRICT
When: Saturday, April 3 at 12:00 PM
Where: Meet At Roosevelt Park – 57 Oak Street, Burlington, VT
Who: VSEA, open to all other labor organizations, and community members
 
  • 12:00 – Meet at Roosevelt Park to canvas Speaker Jill Krowinski’s district
  • 2:00 – Rally at Roosevelt Park
  • 2:30 – Caravan to follow the rally. View the caravan route here.
 
Immediately following the rally, we will get into our cars, decorated with signs, and circle the district, honking our horns for a designated amount of time. Also, members are encouraged to join us in a covid-conscious canvassing of her legislative district asking constituents to let her know they support our workers and teachers and oppose pension cuts.
 
THERE IS AN IMMEDIATE SENSE OF URGENCY AS THERE IS ONLY ONE WEEK LEFT TO DEFEAT THIS PROPOSAL!
 
Wear your VSEA green, mask and be prepared to socially distance!
