There’s a saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

Imagine the Governor marching in the New York City Labor Day Parade, followed three to four spots later in the lineup by hundreds of PEF members with signs demanding a fair contract for all the work they do as nurses, parole officers, fire protection specialists, and so many more titles?

That’s the picture PEF wants to show the Governor and New Yorkers this year, and we need your help.

“We need people to show up,” said Dan Carpenter, PEF’s assistant director of field organizing. “We need to be able to put people in the streets with signs that say PEF demands a fair contract.”

Contract Team Chair Darlene Williams and her team have been working hard at the bargaining table for every PEF member and she is putting out the call for members to give a few hours of their time to help send the Governor a strong message.

“I do not want to be at that parade with only 50 people behind me,” she said. “Bring your friends, bring your kids, bring your family, bring your pets. We need everybody. We need you at the parades. People need to be at every one of these parades.”

Another parade in Massena, Region 7, has been added to the RSVP page. Regions 9 and 12 will bus marchers to the New York City parade, Carpenter said.

The Contract Team is fighting for across the board pay increases and standing firm against increased health care costs, among myriad other small and big table negotiations. “If you’re willing to fight for a contract, then you have got to show up. It can’t be 9 people or 50. It’s got to be hundreds,” Carpenter said.

Members and guests are asked to RSVP so PEF can assure enough supplies for all participants.
