A Special Message to Our Members

To Our Members:

Last week, the Memphis City Council made a tough but necessary decision to secure a strong future for the City by approving the 2015 operating budget, which included changes to healthcare benefits.  On July 15, the City Council will vote on whether to reform the current pension plan to a 401k-type system.  Without these changes, the City’s financial future is at risk.  If these changes are not made, the City Council only has two choices:  (1) a significant tax increase OR (2) drastic cuts in services.

Please know that we are involved in this because it’s one of the most critical issues facing our community today. It affects all of us. We are all committed to making Memphis better, and we can’t do that without first reversing the migration of the middle class away from Memphis.
