Retirement bills that would change our retirement system for new hires after July1, 2011 are being introduced in the Senate by Sen. Liljenquist of Bountiful. The UEA, USEA, UPEA and Fraternal Order of Police gathered last Saturday to ask the legislature to "Slow down" and look more closely at any changes. The bills would also take away the 1.5% 401k contribution that all teachers receive. Rehirees would also lose the ability to receive their pension and a 14.6% 401k.
The UEA is distributing lawn signs and talking point on our new Public Relations plan. Ask your rep about getting one of the signs and listen to KSL Radio for our spots.
Thanks for your support.
