Urge Your Legislators to Support the MTA-Backed Fair Public Higher Education Workplaces Bill!
The MTA is supporting legislation to ensure more fair and just workplaces for public higher education faculty and staff, and we need your help to secure legislative co-sponsors.
The bill, An Act to ensure fair public higher education workplaces, was filed by Senator Pat Jehlen (D-Somerville) and Representative Paul Mark (D-Peru). It would eliminate the waiting period for newly hired employees to begin receiving health insurance coverage, streamline the process for funding and validating collective bargaining agreements, and make faculty and staff at public colleges and universities, their spouses and their dependents eligible for a tuition and fee credit that covers 100 percent of the mandatory cost of public higher education programs.
