Posted 3/15/14- NOTE: IRS Mileage reimbursement rate has changed slightly. Click on the link below for info:



Reminder to all state employees to continue checking to make sure your license is active. Any staff that does not have a license and it’s a requirement of the job will be automatically dismissed. Click this link to check whether your license is valid through the MN DMV

Remember, YOUR apathy and failure to make a quick phone call or send a short e-mail could have an end result of doing our difficult and stressful, not to mention thankless jobs for lower wages and the loss of our pensions. ACT NOW!

Weingarten Rights
 In 1975, the Supreme Court ruled in the Weingarten decision, that an employee is entitled to have a union representative present during any interview which may result in his or her discipline.  It is up to you to insist on union representation. If you fail to do so, you may waive your rights.  "If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I respectfully request that my union representative or steward be present at this meeting. If this discussion could lead to my being disciplined and you deny my request for representation, I choose not to answer any questions." 

Member Benefits
 As union members, we bargain collectively with our employers over wages, benefits, and rights. We have the best chance of receiving better wages, benefits and fair treatment in the workplace by bargaining collectively as a union. Most of us have very limited bargaining power as one person, but as a group, we are strong. And, with a good negotiated contract, we have legal protections we would not have otherwise. Under the employment at will doctrine, the cornerstone of American employment law, in general terms, unless we belong to a protected group, our employer has the right to discipline or terminate, with impunity, us for any reason -- even a bad one -- or for no reason at all. That's why it is sometimes called the fire at will doctrine.  With a collective bargaining agreement, we have rights.  Management must have "just cause" for any disciplinary action taken against a union employee. "Just cause" is spelled out in our union contract so that we know exactly what is expected of us.


Any member wishing to become a Union Steward, please contact Jen Montgomery or Cory Vargason



United we bargain; divided we beg. Together we build power to get the pay, benefits and respect we
deserve. Our power comes from strong local unions that mobilize their members to showcase the
solidarity that gets us good contracts. It starts with active and informed members who contribute their
ideas, energy and skills. Our most effective tool to win a fair contract is visible and vocal members, who attend meetings, attend rallies, send emails, make calls, wear green, and post flyers in their worksites.
