PEF, AFT Presidents and PEF nurses, EMS rally at Stony Brook

Under sunny skies, PEF President Wayne Spence and American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten joined PEF nurses and EMS staff and their supporters at an informational rally outside SUNY Stony Brook University Hospital on Long Island.

The union leaders called for respect and dignity for nurses; highlighted staffing, retention and pay inequity issues; and talked about union efforts to push SUNY administration to recruit and retain qualified staff.

President Spence also gave a summary of PEF’s lawsuit against SUNY, filed April 8 in State Supreme Court, claiming that the implementation of recent salary adjustments was contrary to law.

“After hearing from so many of you about the capricious and irrational implementation of your geo pay,” he said, “we filed a lawsuit challenging the improperly implemented salary adjustments.”
