ALBANY, N.Y. Dec. 17, 2018 — New York State United Teachers President Andy Pallotta today reacted to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s address laying out his priorities for the 2019 legislative session:
“While the details are, obviously, critical, many of the ideas the governor outlined today line up with our own legislative ‘to do’ list. We especially welcome Gov. Cuomo’s vow to protect workers — and public sector unions like NYSUT — against the corporations and billionaires who want to strip away our rights. When workers do well, our state moves forward. It’s that simple.”
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.
