ALBANY, N.Y. April 13, 2018 – New York State United Teachers President Andy Pallotta today congratulated nurses at Albany Medical Center who voted to unionize and affiliate with the New York State Nurses Association.
“Being part of a strong union will ensure that you have a voice in the decisions that impact you as you care for patients. And, as part of a union, you will see better wages and benefits for you and family. As the wealthy elite and big corporations try to reduce pay and benefits for workers, your voice – and your collective strength – is now more important than ever. On behalf of the officers and the more than 600,000 members of New York State United Teachers, we congratulate you on your victory. Welcome to the union family.”
New York State United Teachers is a statewide union with more than 600,000 members in education, human services and health care. NYSUT is affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers, the National Education Association and the AFL-CIO.
