All Retired State Employees:
Education Minnesota is holding a Pension Rally this coming Monday, April 3rd. The rally will be held in the Rotunda of the State Capitol from 3:45 – 4:45. Various legislators will be speaking. We believe it is the only rally for retiree pensions. MRSEA members might want to join in because the rally will highlight the need to compensate public employee retirees for losses to INFLATION.
Monday is also the last meeting of the LCPR. The Commission will introduce and vote on a "Delete Everything" amendment, which will be the draft legislation that the LCPR will be recommending to the Legislature and the Governor. If accepted, retirees will wind up with a 2.5% one-time COLA payment. Attached below is a spreadsheet that shows the distribution of the total 600 million budget target the legislative leadership gave the LCPR. Below is a link to the LCPR that will allow you to view the amendment and the agenda for Monday’s meeting.
Only written testimony will be accepted at this meeting. The link to viewing the meeting is also available on the LCPR home page.
