State Employees Push Back Hard Against Touching Pensions, Many Stressing The Need For Dedicated Revenue Stream

VSEA is thanking the members and retirees who took some time last night to testify to the State Pension Task Force at a public hearing on the Task Force’s interim report to legislators.

Lawmakers heard from frontline Health Care, Corrections, and other state employees, each describing the current work situation and many reminding how this fight is one that only adds to the stress of having to work with COVID threat. Several testifiers implored the Task Force to identify a dedicated revenue stream to ensure the pension funds are funded.

The Task Force next meets on November 3.
