Dear USA members,
Exciting news! Governor Deval Patrick is coming to campus on March 28, 2013 to discuss his plans for raising revenues and funding public higher education. The MTA was instrumental in getting the Governor to come to campus so we can hear what he has to say. Please hold this date! The event will be from 12-1pm and pizza will be served. There will be an opportunity for the Presidents to meet with the Governor to discuss the health insurance for retirees and if I am still your President, I will be there and will be quite vocal on behalf of our entire membership.
At the beginning of the rally there will be an opportunity for you to write a letter to your legislator and to also send in questions for Governor Patrick. With the increase of funding to public higher education, several things could be accomplished. One would be enough funding to hire more staff and another would be no more tuition and fee increases, and hopefully more money for cost of living adjustments. Please plan on coming to the rally to hear what the Governor has to say.
If you haven't already sent an email or made a phone call to your Legislators about the Retiree Health Care, please take a moment to let them hear from you about this benefit take back.
Also, today is the last day to submit your USA ballot. So if you haven't voted and want to, please fill out your green ballot and walk it over to 110 Hampshire House to make sure it gets counted. If you don't have a ballot, please call Dave Litterer, USA Election Board Chair, at 5-4503.
Remember the Union begins with "U"
