Christine M. Robertson

Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to our beloved sister, Christine M. Robertson, who passed away on November 12, 2017. Christine joined MCEA on May 1, 1971 and was a faithful hard working union member for over 46 years. Christine will be sorely missed by all that had the privilege to know her, and by those that benefited from her incredible talent, strength and efforts to improve the quality of life in the workplace for State workers. Your toil on this earth is done Christine, rest in heavenly peace, dear sister.

2017 MCEA Convention

The Maryland Classified Employees Association held their 82nd Annual Convention in Ocean City, MD during the second week of October. The convention featured notable state labor and political leaders as well as the important work of charting the course forward for MCEA. Elections were held at the convention and President Linda Day was once again re-elected.

Harvey Relief

Dear Union Brothers and Sisters,

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey which has brought untold suffering, destruction and devastation to the citizens of Texas, your help is desperately needed now. Although certainly our thoughts and our prayers are with those who have suffered through the aftermath, we need to do more to help those who have lost everything in life. Our fellow Americans have lost not only their homes and personal properties, they have also lost their jobs and even the bare essentials of human survival. Countless survivors are in disparate need of food, medicine, shelter and basic essentials. Can you imagine how it would be to wake up with only the clothes on your back? I cannot!

 

MCEA Saves the Job of a Wrongfully Accused State Employee

MCEA took Ms. Morris’ case to the Office of Administrative Appeals (OAH) and won her job back!
