CHEYENNE – The future of Wyoming’s public workforce is in doubt. Revenue and budget cuts, changes in retirement programs and personnel rules are only a few of the issues that face Wyoming’s public employees, as well as the Legislature, governor and elected officials at all levels.
From 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 16, the Wyoming Public Employee Association will hold a public meeting for state employees and interested community members in the Cottonwood Room at the Laramie County Library, 2200 Pioneer Ave. Following the presentation and Q&A, the staff and board members of the WPEA will be available to visit with individuals.
“WPEA applauds the results of the 2019 legislative session and Gov. Gordon’s support of the ECA raise for state employees,” Executive Director Betty Jo Beardsley said in a news release. “WPEA will continue to work with Governor Gordon’s administration for raises and competitive salaries.”
Topics for the meeting will include changes in state employee compensation, dramatic changes recently made to the Wyoming Personnel Rules and the Legislature’s Government Spending and Efficiency Project.
The Wyoming Public Employee Association serves as an advocacy group for state employees and Laramie County School District 1 classified staff for better working conditions, fair compensation and to improve the quality of life for all Wyoming.
