Rally To Protect Michigan’s State Employees

September 20 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Rally To Protect Michigan’s State Employees

WHEN:   Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 8 am – 11 am

WHERE: Capitol Commons Center, 400 S. Pine St, Lansing MI 48933

WHY:       The Civil Service Commission is planning on voting on proposed rule changes at its meeting on Wednesday, September 20, 2017. These rule changes would take the freedom away from state employees to negotiate for important job protections such as overtime pay, seniority and grievances. They also would allow the Civil Service Commission to adopt a rule at any time abrogating contract provisions. What’s really scary is that these unfair rule changes could be approved by three of four non-elected political appointees and has the support of Governor Snyder who has appointed 3 of the 4 commissioners. So far, over 1,500 emails have been sent to the Civil Service Commission, urging them to protect state employees, but we need to keep up the pressure. There needs to be a big turnout to make our voices heard and tell the commissioners to reject this effort to rig the rules against State Employees.
