The Minnesota Public Employees Association, Inc. (MNPEA) was established to provide Public Employees in Minnesota with an alternative to the standard National and International Unions.  The Minnesota Public Employees Association is structured to give the Members control over their representation.  The Business Agents and Board answer to the Members who, by the Constitution, have an override authority on the decisions of the Board.  MNPEA is a non-partisan association.  This is truly a New Concept in Labor Representation for the 21st Century.

PERA Correctional Plan meeting

2017-12-26 06:56:37 poster2

On December 19th, MNPEA Vice President Tom Perkins and Hennepin County Detention Deputy/MNPEA Retiree Wade Laszlo met with PERA Executive Director Doug Anderson.

MNPEA’s members are very appreciative of Doug Anderson’s time over this.

The topic was proposed changes to the PERA Correctional Pension.
Last session there was a proposal by Rep. O’Driscoll and Sen. Rosen to eliminate the 2.5% COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment) in favor of a 1% COLA with a 1.5% cap based on CPI (inflation).

Current law provides a 2.5% COLA as long as the fund is at least 90% funded. Currently it is 95.7% funded.

It is unclear if the vetoed O’Driscoll/Rosen Bill or a similar Bill will resurface this session, or if there will even be a session.

While the legislature makes the law, it was thought important to meet with PERA to have input into their recommendations.

PERA Executive Director Doug Anderson is revising his recommendation to the PERA Board to include a second proposal:

*Change current COLA to 100% of CPI, 1% floor, 2.5% cap (currently a fixed 2.5%).

This will mirror the current COLA benefit in place.

 

The MNPEA Board will meet and discuss a response.

Dues to Remain Unchanged!

2017-11-27 18:42:32 poster2

The MNPEA Board has announced dues are to remain unchanged for 2018 and 2019. They should remain the same in the near and foreseeable future.

The monthly dues of $39 a month give members on and off duty legal overage.

This includes both civil and criminal protection and the MNPEA legal plan also covers spouses!

We live in litigiousness society. On duty protection is a must, but off duty incidents can also affect your job. A DWI, a confrontation outside of work all can be a threat to your employment. MNPEA lawyers are only a phone call away.

MNPEA lawyers represent our members at all levels, negotiations as well as grievances. Not just a Rep.

We strive to give our members the best coverage in Minnesota for the best price!
