Sisters and Brothers,

The 2024-2025 Wage reopener to vote on a 2.5% wage increase to include a step/top step lump sum on July 1, 2024, has concluded. The vote took place on March 28, 2024, from 9 am-3 pm and was conducted electronically.

The Next step is the contract will be sent next week to the legislature to vote on. Per State statute they must vote on the contract within 30 days of receipt. It is not a done deal. A.F.S.C.M.E Local 749 would encourage all members to contact their State representative and State senator to support the wage increase.  Local 749 will keep you updated on the vote and results from the Capitol.
