Fix Tier 6
Take action today! It’s time to Fix Tier 6!
The state’s pension system is meant to serve as a recruitment and retention tool. Since the creation of Tier 6, it no longer does.
Under Tier 6, people have less incentive to take a public-sector job, and public workers are less likely to stay with that job.
CSEA helped achieve positive changes to Tier 6 two years ago through members’ phone calls, emails and meetings with state legislators. Now, it’s time to build on these changes and continue fighting to make Tier 6 a fair pension plan for workers.
Visit the Fix Tier 6 page today to email your legislators, and download and share our call to action flyer. Let’s flood legislators’ inboxes and let them know that CSEA members demand improvements to Tier 6!
