Thousands of state employees are facing potential temporary layoffs because the Senate has failed to take action on funding a real state budget. The House passed a budget that fully funds our state employee contracts months ago. But the Republican-controlled Senate has refused to fund our contracts. In fact, every single Republican senator voted to reject our contracts and cut funding for higher education and other vital public services. Now, despite getting a 4% pay increase, they’re refusing to negotiate as a potential state government shutdown looms.
Call your Senator TODAY and tell them it's time to come to the table and pass a budget that supports public service and invests in Washington.
