Thanks to the late budget negotiations, State senators and Assemblymembers have just days to debate additional bills addressing the needs of New Yorkers. PEF’s legislative team is hard at work pushing the union’s priorities, but as always, lawmakers tend to listen to the people who actually elect them! So please take a moment today to send an email to your local legislators letting them know you support the bills PEF is pushing. At this time, we have seven active letter writing campaigns. Just click the links below to get started.

Reform Tier 6: Standardize public employee pension contributions at 3%

Hazard pay for ALL essential workers!

End toxic workplaces: Stop workplace bullying!

Protect union health insurance

Amend the “Less is More” parole law

Change the way COLA is calculated for retirees

Make telework a permanent reality

Amend the Nurse Staffing Committee law

Together, our collective voices really do make a difference.  If you read the PEF  “Fund our Future” campaign literature, you will see that many of our ideas were once again incorporated in the budget. Those Fund Our Future materials were provided to the governor and our voices were heard.
