A lawsuit brought by five different organizations, including your union, succeeded in getting a temporary restraining order to block the new state pension law in its entirety and until further court rulings determine the act’s constitutionality.
After a long and energizing campaign, it is time to build our Union. Elections for officers and representatives are starting now, and we urge you to consider nominating yourself or your colleagues.
We are very pleased to report that the Union contract has been executed by representatives of the Union and Board of Trustees as of Friday May 9, 2014. This means that the contract is “in effect” for SURS pension purposes, and we have another year before the caps on salaries go into effect.
