Letter Carriers’ Food Drive May 12

Food Drive graphic


The Letter Carriers Food Drive is the largest one-day food drive in the country. The need is critical as in a few short weeks after the May 12th drive schools will be out for the summer. The need for food will then be increased. This allows food banks and food pantries to restock for this need.

Volunteers are needed to help with the efforts. Opportunities are listed on the Capital Area United Way volunteer portal. Here is the link to the website: http://micauw.galaxydigital.com/need/.

No general raise April 1

Based on extraordinarily large health care cost increases, support staff received no general increase for the final year (2017) of our previous health care contract.  Each of the eight unions in the Coalition of Labor Organizations at MSU will be subject to the zero increase on its contract anniversary date, which for CTs is April 1, 2018.

President Deb Bittner addresses this situation in our upcoming CT News.  She discusses how and why we came to this point, how our new contract avoids a zero raise scenario, and how we are implementing programs to further reduce increases in health care costs. Watch for her article on page 1.
