Over the past several months, the PSC professional staff has been joined by several new people, working hard in a difficult remote environment.
Bettina Damiani became the union’s new legislative director in the spring, coming to the union after four years at The NewsGuild of New York and several years of being a worker advocate in the world of New York City politics. She has hit the ground running, organizing legislative activists within the union and pursuing ambitious lobbying goals for the PSC. She replaced Kate Pfordresher, who retired in the spring.
Denyse Procope-Gregoire became membership records coordinator this year after decades in data management. She replaced Diana Rosato, who retired this year after several decades of dedicated service to the PSC.
EXPERIENCE IN THE FIELD
Samantha Sherry became the PSC’s membership systems administrator, and is building on much of the work done by Doug Ferrari, who also retired this year after years of committed service to the membership department.
Greg Douros came aboard this year as a contract enforcement coordinator, working alongside Emma Powell and Faye Moore. He previously worked with the Service Employees International Union in Denver, and he told Clarion that he “spent eight years abroad in the Middle East and Asia supporting union organizing efforts and global campaigns in multiple industries, including mining, auto and hotels.”
