Roberts earns highest score for supporting state employees
October 15, 2019
AUGUSTA – Rep. Tiffany Roberts, D-South Berwick, has received a 100% rating on votes to support state workers, according to a recent scorecard released by the Maine State Employees Association, Local 1989 of the Service Employees International Union (MSEA-SEIU).
“Maine state employees provide vital services to our community,” said Roberts. From caring for the most vulnerable members of our society, to maintaining our transportation network and protecting our environment, these public servants show up every day to support the people of Maine. I have been proud to stand up for state employees in Augusta.
The member-run union group took into account five key bills from the first session of the 129th Legislature. The bills focused on pay parity for adult protective caseworkers, strengthening collective bargaining through binding arbitration, funding a compensation and classification study, excluding collectively bargained salary increases from earnable compensation limits for retirement and supporting the state budget.
Roberts is serving her first term in the Maine Legislature. She represents part of North Berwick and part of South Berwick. Roberts serves on the Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee.
