Political/Legislative Update All Hands Needed--Active & RetiredTier VI Lobby Day--March 13th
The UFA will be having a Lobby Day in Albany on Tuesday, March 13th. There will be a rally at 11:30am outside the Capital in conjunction with the NYSPFFA. As in years past, the UFA will provide transportation to and from Albany leaving from various locations. Delegates should compile a list of all members that need transportation along with their preferred departure location (exact locations will follow shortly). THIS FORM should be faxed to the UFA 212-683-0710 or emailed to PAC@ufanyc.org.
It is expected that the buses will leave at 7am and not return until 9pm. CLICK HERE for UFA Lobby Day Pick Up Locations and Times. Members should also look up their legislators on the UFA Website and make appointments to see them during lobby day.
Prior to Lobby Day we are calling on all members, their family and friends to contact the legislature and voice your opposition to Tier VI. Please go to the UFA Website to contact your elected representatives.
In addition, the NYS AFL/CIO has set up a special phone # that members can call to contact their Senate and Assembly members:
Call the Governor, your State Senator and Assembly member and voice your opposition to Tier VI!
