Voice: May 2017
A wide array of issues with huge implications for PSEA members remain on front burners in the Pennsylvania Legislature.
Negotiations on the 2017-18 state budget will be gaining in intensity over the next several weeks. The state House has passed a budget bill that scales back some of Gov. Tom Wolf’s proposals. But it does include three of Wolf’s proposals that are strongly supported by PSEA: a $100 million increase in basic education funding, a $25 million increase in special education funding, and a $2 million appropriation for school breakfast programs.
Also lurking are misguided attempts at so-called “reform’’ of property taxes and pensions; and eliminating payroll deduction of union dues. There is also a strong chance a case threatening the rights of unions to charge non-members in a bargaining unit a fee for services will come before the U.S. Supreme Court.
