PEF President Wayne Spence issued the following statement on Feb. 9, 2024:

“It has now been more than four months since the horrific acts of terror committed by Hamas on Oct. 7, 2023, which killed more than 1,200 Israelis and others. In that time, tens of thousands more Israelis and Palestinians have died, been injured, or been displaced.  PEF joined our international parent unions, AFT and SEIU, to condemn the violence in October, and we echo them now in calling for a negotiated ceasefire in Gaza, which must include the release of hostages and delivery of life-saving aid to those in need while a peaceful solution is sought.”
