Our nation has laid to rest another Hero.
As President of the Maryland Classified Employees Association (MCEA) it is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to the MCEA Website. Since 1935 MCEA has advocated for and has improved the quality of life in the workplace for countless State, County and Municipal employees throughout the State of Maryland. MCEA became affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) in October of 2010. We now stand with our new family of union brothers and sisters which boast 1.5 million members nationwide.
MCEA held its Annual Statewide Advisory Council Meeting on April 27, 2013, which, for the first time, was opened to all members of MCEA.
Many of us in Maryland watched the recent recall election in Wisconsin with great interest. That state's governor, Scott Walker, stated in a conversation with wealthy business leaders that it was his intention to use a "divide and conquer" strategy to destroy unions.
Walker instituted policies that denied unions collective bargaining rights. He also reduced sick and vacation leave and pension benefits for union members. These things, he said, would help reduce the state's budget deficit.
