It's Official-Shutdown Averted

Brothers and Sisters,

If you are signed up for the notifications you should have already received a text from the State of Alaska, Department of Administration letting you know that the layoff notices received in regards to the government shutdown, have been rescinded.

We want to thank all of those who took action to assist in avoiding this crisis. Your Union has remained vigilant, staying in constant contact with legislators and other unions working to keep all of our members working and keeping Alaska open for business. We know how hard our public employees work and how many services vital to the health of this great state depend on State of Alaska employees. 

It is our hope that our lives can return to normal and that the legislators will now work toward a sustainable fiscal plan so that we don't find ourselves in this same situation in the foreseeable future. 

Hopefully, with this behind us, our members can have an enjoyable 4th of July weekend spent having fun with friends and family rather than worrying about how to pay your bills.
