PEIA Information for Public Employees

PEIA Board modifies, approves proposed cuts at December meeting

The failure of the legislative leaders to fully fund PEIA, coupled with skyrocketing drug costs, forced the PEIA Finance Board to propose cutting $55 million of earned benefits from active and retired public employees. 

The PEIA Finance Board put forth a proposed plan and held public hearings to receive feedback from plan participants. AFT would like to thank the many members and retirees who attended hearing and spoke about the issue.

Welcome to AFT-Public Employees

Recently, AFSCME (American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) partnered more closely than ever to ensure that members in both unions benefit from our collective strength. This union partnership has included coordination with political mobilization at each level of government, as well as adopting one union’s program that best supports the goals of a specific group of union members.
