Cuddy earns highest score for supporting state employees

Oct 01, 2019

Augusta — Rep. Scott Cuddy, D-Winterport, 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.

“Being part of a union has made all the difference for me and my family, so as a state representative, I’ve made it a priority to represent the interests of working Mainers,” Cuddy said. “Maine’s state employees contribute so much to our state, and I’m proud to support them in the Legislature.”

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.

Cuddy represents Frankfort, Searsport, Swanville and Winterport.
