We all need to be informed about pending legislation and we cannot be complacent! Some important questions that will be addressed:

  1. What pension changes might be imposed on current Tier I employees (those first employed prior to January 1, 2011)?
  2. Can the State tax pensions and other retirement income?
  3. Can the State limit employee raises to the rate of inflation?
  4. Can the State reduce the 3% automatic annual increases for pensions?
  5. Can the State increase the deductible and co-pays for employee and retiree health insurance?
  6. Can federal bankruptcy and state constitutional laws be changed to allow significant reductions in pensions and health care benefits?

Note that we have scheduled the time of this meeting to allow current employees to attend right after work. Refreshments will be provided.

SUAA Launches "Higher Education Creates Jobs" Campaign

SUAA is conducting a statewide "Higher Education Creates Jobs" campaign through a generous donation by SUAAction.  Signs and posters are available, and there will be newspaper and Facebook ads.

What would your community look like without higher education?  Some of the ways higher education creates jobs include:

  • Businesses look for and locate in communities that have quality higher education opportunities.
  • Often the institution of higher education is the community's largest employer.
  • Higher education employees purchase or rent housing; and employees purchase goods and services locally, supporting employment in grocery stores, restaurants, home repair businesses, gas stations, mom and pop stores, and on and on and on.
  • Community colleges and universities contract out in their local areas for a variety of products and services (construction projects, printing services, food venders, etc.) providing employment in local communities.
  • Higher education employees pay taxes to support local governments, public schools, police and fire services, snow removal, etc., generating jobs in local communities.
  • Students graduate and often locate in the community. Some of these educated individuals create small businesses; and as these businesses grow, they hire additional employees.
