PEF president to visit every region
Summer Town Hall Meeting Schedule
If you would like to know more about key issues facing PEF members today and how the union is addressing them, your chance is coming up.
PEF President Wayne Spence will visit every PEF region this summer to talk to members about issues including the increasing erosion of the state civil service system and the standards of merit and fitness for state hiring and promotions. He will discuss the problems of privatization of public services and the contracting out of jobs.
He also will explain why it is so important to vote No in November on whether New York should hold a constitutional convention in 2019, and why you should spread the word to your family and friends.
