“PEF looks forward to working with Gov. Kathy Hochul and her leadership team as our members continue to deliver the essential services that keep the state running.  There is a lot of work to do as New York grapples with a relentless virus and the professionals who make up our union are eager to do it – together.  The state is stronger when labor and management respect each other and are committed to a future where all New Yorkers have the freedom to thrive.”
