Urge co-workers to join PEF

To the Editor:
As a retiree, who was a member of the original (first) PEF Executive Board, I urge all NYS PS&T employees to sign up to join PEF. The new court decision is trying to break up unions. We cannot let them get their way!

There is power in numbers. Every member should talk to the people they work with about joining PEF. Together, we will win.

Make SEFA donations to specific charities

To the Editor:
I recently saw in The Communicator an article promoting the State’s SEFA campaign.

While all PEF members should be encouraged to donate, they need to be mindful that donations made to the United Way, or just plain ordinary SEFA donations that are not made to a specific charity — which are designated for distribution by the United Way — go to, among other charities, the very not-for-profit entities to which the state contracts out our jobs.

Accordingly, PEF members should make sure they specifically designate their contribution go to specific charities, other than the United Way.

Negotiate more fitness plans

To the Editor:
Please incorporate the discussion ofSilver Sneakers” (physical fitness program) for retirees as part of the contract/insurance plan talks.

Many insurance companies participate in this program when they provide secondary coverage to Medicare. The program will encourage seniors to exercise, which may help reduce the health care expenses for which insurance companies pay, and keep insurance costs for all PEF members from rising as much.
