PEF is proud to provide you with both the written and video version of the PEF Workforce testimony given before the Assembly Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committees on February 11,2014.
This testimony focused on the negative impact of the Governor’s proposed budget on PEF member jobs and delivery of critical community services.
Most specifically, PEF’s statement addressed:
• Closures of SUNY Hospitals that would decimate community services in Brooklyn and eliminate jobs.
• Privatization of services in OMH and OPWDD and negative impact to members and consumers in implementation of Centers of Excellence.
• Expansion of the OCFS Close to Home effort despite its dismal failure in NYC.
