Unions Rally in Lansing Claiming Unfair Treatment

Unionized state employees will be rallying in Lansing today to draw attention to what they call unfair treatment.

Those from the Coalition of State Employees claim state officials didn’t bargain in good faith on their latest 2 year contract that again calls for concessions.

Employees received a pay raise but are now required to pay significantly more of their health insurance costs that they claim provides less coverage in service and care.  .UAW representatives say the State has a surplus and there is no need to again ask workers–who they say are doing more with less–to give back even more of their pay.  The call the contract “outrageous” and want the administration to reconsider.

The rally will happen today at noon outside Governor Snyder’s office in the Romney Building across from the Capitol.  The Coalition represents 35-thousand workers.
