Urgent message to your legislator or your health care cost share will increase

Dear Colleague,

I hope you are having a great summer.  Two urgent issues require your attention:

1. Governor Charlie Baker has vetoed $412 million from the fiscal 2017 budget passed by the Legislature. These vetoes have serious repercussions for MTA members, including a potential increase in your health care cost share from 20% to 25% (if you are now paying 20%, your share will increase to 25%).  Other educational funding has been cut as well for non-faculty members.
