Statement from PEF President Spence on the IDC:
As a union representing 54,000 professional state employees, PEF is committed to making the lives of our members and their families better by ensuring job continuity, access to good health care, and fully funded retirements.
The Public Employees Federation applauds the Independent Democratic Conference for sharing this same commitment and their past efforts of helping New York workers. Today’s announcement of a majority coalition ensures concerns of our working and middle class families will continue to be front and center.
We look forward to a continued partnership with the IDC as we enter the new legislative session.
