Your Hamtramck Firefighters have taken cut after cut over the years – including reductions in pay, retirement and healthcare. Now, state legislators are preparing new bills to cut retirement and healthcare even more.
Earlier this year, Governor Snyder appointed a Task Force that has made proposals and recommendations that worked for everyone. However, it looks like this will be ignored and these new bills will drastically cut the retirements that we’ve worked so hard to maintain.

We need your help – it only takes a minute to assist us. Please contact your local Representative and Senator (find there here) and tell them to leave firefighter and police retirements alone!
