GENERAL ASSEMBLY OVERRIDES VETO OF MOU GRIEVANCE BILL

Today, the House voted 96-41 and Senate voted 31-15 to override Governor Hogan’s veto on our MOU grievance bill.

You care about the people of Maryland.

Important Information for AFSCME Members re: 1% Raise

The Hogan Administration is continuing its’ childish games. The Hogan Administration has chosen to try and punish AFSCME bargaining units by trying to deny them their rightful 1% wage increase, due January 2020.
