AFT Healthcare-MD Acknowledges Members During Public Health Week

April 7th -13th is National Public Health Week and AFT Healthcare-Maryland President Debra Perry is sending a “Thank You” note to all public health employees in Bargaining Unit E, acknowledging the great work they do for the citizens of Maryland. In her note to Bargaining Unit E employees, President Perry wrote:

“This legislative session, we were able to fight back the recommendations of the Department of Legislative Services that would have decreased our newly agreed upon 2% COLA increase in January 2015, pushed back attempts to delay step increases, and preserved the four new health premium holidays that we negotiated for in our contract. Also, in coalition with other unions and interest groups, we were able to get a bill passed by the Maryland legislature that will help prevent workplace violence in healthcare facilities. Again, thank you for all you do!
