We are New York State’s public workers.
We are nurses, teachers, engineers, parole officers, and many other professionals.
We have done our part to solve the State’s budget problems.
- Since 2008 the State’s workforce has been reduced by 16,000 jobs.
- The State pension plan was changed in 2010 to create a new Tier 5 that will save state and local governments $35 Billion over the next thirty years.
- In 2011 we agreed to a labor contract that freezes pay, requires workers to pay more for health insurance and cuts salaries through furloughs. This contract will save the state more than $230 million over the next four years.
Enough is enough!
Say NO to Tier 6
No more cuts to state workers
We need our legislators to speak up for the people who do the work- New York’s public workers.
