Don’t take your union benefits for granted

To the Editor:

There is an alert in a recent issue of The eCommunicator Plus about anti-union canvassers.

Since the Janus v. AFSCME decision, websites have been set up for every public employee around the country to use to terminate of their union affiliation. I’m confident that these canvassers are part of a larger, well funded, anti-union organization. In an era when private-sector union membership has fallen below 10 percent, those of us in public-sector unions are the last vestiges of a once powerful union movement.

We can’t take our union benefits for granted.

A few years ago, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker faced a recall election after curtailing collective-bargaining rights for public employees. In that recall, one-third of union households voted to keep Walker as governor. Clearly a lack of union solidarity in Wisconsin worked against public employees.

State employees in New York have a very good work-life balance. The way that we vote allows us to hold on to that.
