Given the signals of severe budget cuts, wage freezes, tax caps, and other austerity measures coming from the Cuomo Administration, our state affiliate, New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) has scheduled two important statewide events.
An extraordinary lobby day to be held February 15 at the Capitol will bring in grassroots lobbyists early to speak up on bedrock issues: budget, revenues, jobs and defending union rights. Unprecedented statewide home district lobby days are being planned for February 3 and 4 to turn out members in full force from one end of the state to another, carrying our messages to legislators in their district offices. "We must fight back now to preserve a quality education for our students and hard-won benefits and labor rights," said Steve London, PSC First Vice President.
