Currently there is a vicious attack on our active and retiree health care and pension benefits. Legislation (House Bills 6074-6086) was introduced on 11/30/2016 during the Lame Duck session. This legislative action has dire and life changing impacts on our membership. Governor Snyder is on the record saying that a thoughtful discussion needs to take place on these matters. POAM Representatives were present at the Local Government Committee hearing on 12/1/2016, and are scheduled to testify on Tuesday, December 6th.
The POAM is requesting all active and retired members join us in a show of support and unity to start a thoughtful conversation on these very important matters at the front steps of the State Capitol Building.
When: Tuesday, December 6th, 2016
Where: Capitol Building (front steps), 100 Capitol Ave., Lansing MI 48933
Meet Time: 8:45 am
Suggested Parking: South Grand ramp located at 201 S. Grand Ave., Lansing MI 48933
