2022 Primary Election Endorsements

VSEA announced recently, via press release, its list of endorsed candidates in the 2022 primary election

“These are an outstanding group of committed, pro-state employee candidates whom we feel we can rely on to stand with us when the going gets tough,” said VSEA President Aimee Bertrand Towne in the release.

VSEA’s member-driven endorsement process involves multiple stages of review of the elective and legislative history of candidates, and of questionnaires crafted by VSEA members. This round of the union’s endorsements only considered candidates with contested primaries; all other candidates will be considered for endorsement during VSEA’s general election endorsement process later this year.

78th Annual Meeting Registration

VSEA is pleased to invite all VSEA members and retirees to participate in your union’s 78th Annual Meeting!

This is VSEA’s most important meeting of the year because it’s where an operating budget for the new fiscal year is adopted, proposed changes to bylaws governing union business are debated and voted up or down, and members from across state government, as well as retirees, meet as one body to discuss current union-wide fights, educate each other about our worksite-specific or Unit issues and determine next steps, if any.

This year’s VSEA Annual Meeting and September Council Meeting (one day prior) are both being offered in-person and online. For members attending in person, both meetings are being held at the Vermont College of Fine Arts, located at 36 College Street in Montpelier.

To determine how much food to order for the in-person meetings, please let VSEA know in advance whether you will be attending this year’s Annual Meeting and/or Council Meeting in-person or online, via Zoom. Once registered, VSEA will send the Zoom link and call-in information prior to the meeting to those who opt to participate online.
