OPEB & Pension Reform Update
Via: Kenneth E. Grabowski, Legislative Director
We are expecting bills to be introduced tomorrow (Thursday) regarding the Other Post Employment Benefit (OPEB) and pension reform debate. However: NO VOTE WILL BE TAKEN THIS WEEK. Ongoing communication has been occurring with the Police and Fire organizations and legislative leadership and the Governor.
As part of our legislative engagement, we have been provided bill drafts, which our legal counsel is reviewing and providing comment. As we continue to engage in thoughtful conversation, we are continuing to fight for our core principles:
- Maintaining our ability to collectively bargain
- Protecting the benefits that have been promised
Action may occur next week. We will continue providing regular updates as we move forward.
