What pay freeze?

 

From the MEA-MFT website:

Montana state employees voluntarily agreed to a two-year pay freeze in 2009 to help balance the state budget when the Great Recession hitMontana.

 

“They carried their weight, and they continued to provide quality services with no pay increase for the past two years,” said Quint Nyman, executive director of the Montana Public Employees Association, speaking at the May 25 news conference. “Demanding that they do it again while state revenues continue to increase daily is not reasonable.”

 

Nyman continued, “Funding this pay plan agreement was never the issue – the money was always there. The legislative majority said they didn’t want to give state employees a modest increase because private sector employees weren’t getting raises. But that’s just not true. According to the Dept. of Labor Statistics, private sector employees are seeing pay increases — both nationally and inMontana.”

 

Timm Twardoski, executive director of AFSCME, said, “The legislative majority has failed each and every state employee.  They have proven they have no respect for the important work state employees do every day for the people and economy ofMontana. It’s unimaginable to ask anyone to take a pay freeze for five calendar years with no explanation.”

 

“We’re not done with the state pay plan yet,” said Feaver. “We’re fighting for our state employee members, who got a raw deal from the Republican-dominated legislature.”
