Funding for our contract may depend on budget negotiations taking place right now in Albany. We all need to send letters! Click here to send yours.

Legislators count the letters they receive when they determine how important any budget request is. If a contract with retroactive pay matters to you, you need to send your letter—it’s as simple as that.

The letter calls on your local Assembly representative to urge Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie to prioritize funding for retroactive pay for the PSC contract as part of this year's State budget negotiation. When you send your letter, a letter will also go to the Speaker informing him that you have contacted your representative.

Feel free to personalize the letters and explain what it means to you and your family and your students to have been without a contract for five years. But don’t worry if you don’t have time to add your own message; the important thing is that you send the message.
