It Takes All of Us to Bargain & Pass Our Pay Plan

In 2023, MFPE members’ last pre-budget bargaining process resulted in historic an historic pay plan. It took hard work at the bargaining table and thousands of conversations with legislators to win:

  • $1.50/hr or 4% wage increase July 1st, 2023
  • Another $1.50/hr or 4% wage increase this coming July 1st
  • A freeze to any out-of-pocket health insurance expense increases until 2025
  • $1,000 retention bonus

Now, MFPE members are back fighting for another fair pay plan. The MFPE Pay Plan Action Team is how members working at the State and in the Montana University System can support our MPFE member-led bargaining team. Together, we will:

  • Host worksite meetings to discuss bargaining proposals and updates
  • Ask our co-workers who haven't joined MFPE yet to stand with us by becoming members
    • Make sure your colleagues who haven't joined yet know they can become full members anytime this summer but their dues won't begin until September. Direct them to this membership form.
  • Increase public visibility and build support around bargaining and in the run up to the legislature
