Paychecks to Increase

State employees such as healthcare workers in Bargaining Unit E and engineers, scientists, and other professionals in Bargaining Unit G will find a 2% raise in their pay checks beginning January 1, 2013.

Happy Thanksgiving, and a five-day weekend

MPEC members and all unit G employees,

As president of MPEC, I would like to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving holiday. As state of Maryland employees, we will be able to enjoy a five-day holiday this year which will include this coming Wednesday thanks to a provision in the last contract negotiated by your union which included an additional paid day off before the holiday.

MPEC will continue to work to assure you the best possible benefits and working conditions for your state careers. We value your input and support as we work on your behalf.
