Unity Please! Act Now!  

I am happy to tell you our voice is being heard. Our Senator, David Carlucci voted against Senate bill (S. 3501-B), and in favor of our collective bargaining rights. Please go to the link below and thank him and give him your opinion on this State Budget.

Senator Carlucci

If you have never been an active union member, I am imploring you to pay attention now and join us in this fight. The Governor's budget is devastating. We support - and the majority of New York voters support - maintaining the tax on high-wage earners: the millionaires' tax. The Governor's budget is already causing real pain: Cite layoffs and program cuts in your own district or institution. This is not about adults and layoffs, but kids (preK-16), patients and programs. Some are using the budget deficit as an excuse to attack collective bargaining. Attacks on seniority, tenure, Triborough protections, our pensions, arbitration, health insurance, and so on are attacks on our collective bargaining rights. Those who attack our collective bargaining rights are using Governor Walker's playbook (WI). Everything we believe in and have fought so hard to achieve is on the table. SUNY and CUNY - our public higher education systems, including their community colleges - cannot bear any more cuts. Cuts affect access, affordability and programs. Higher education will lead us out of the economic crisis. The state must invest in higher ed. The time to act is now! No one can afford to sit this out. The Governor is working very hard to force an on-time budget in place on April 1st. Please go to the link below and make your voice heard. I encourage you to write an hand written letter to your legislators. You can get their addresses from the link below as well.
