Stop unfair pension cuts!

Please send an e-mail NOW urging your representative to oppose efforts to reduce pension benefits for future employees.

A pension bill that passed the Senate on September 15 (S. 2018) cuts benefits for future educators and other public employees by requiring them to work longer for smaller pensions. The MTA opposed the Senate’s bill.

The House will soon consider its version of a pension bill.

All Massachusetts public employees pay the vast majority of their own pension costs, with new teachers paying more than 90 percent. Massachusetts public employees do not receive Social Security, saving taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars a year.

Tell your representative that cutting pension benefits for future employees is unjustified and unfair.
