Lobby Day 2018

Lobby Day will be held in Albany this Tuesday, June 12, 2018. As always, we are asking all available off duty UFA members to attend, but especially Tier 3 & Tier 3/6 Modified members. This year's Lobby Day will focus on improving benefits for Tier 3 members through the Fairness and Equalization Act, as well as other improvements for all members.

The UFA is providing bus transportation to and from Albany. It is expected that the buses will leave at 7:00 am and not return until 9:00 pm. We are willing to provide additional buses to groups of 30 or more.

Once in Albany, we will meet at 10:30 AM at Prime at the Plaza for an early lunch and the Board will address the membership and discuss the day's events. Members should try to schedule meetings with their own representatives between 11:30-4:00. If your respective representative is unavailable, members can also visit his/her office and speak with their Chief of Staff.
