Making Our State Government Work Even Better

Steve Howard discusses how we can improve care at the Vermont Veterans’ Home in Bennington, and meet other important human services needs including serving the elderly and Vermonters seeking food assistance through the 3SquaresVT Program by adequately staffing these services. Steve also explains that the core principles of the Vermont State Employees’ Association, include fairness; that they seek to achieve what is fair and equal in our workplaces, in our communities, in the political arena, and within their union. To this end, members are urging support for a Fair-Share bill, to ensure that state employees continue to make gains at the bargaining table by requiring everyone who benefits from a VSEA contract to contribute their fair share.
