Diving in, building unity

Albany Public Schools United Employees members

For Agnes D. Jackson, 15 is the charm.

After 15 years of trying, the Albany Public Schools United Employees member is finally an RA delegate.

“It’s time to dive in and become a part of things,” she said noting that she intends to share what she and her fellow APSUE delegate, Angel Ferguson, learn at the RA with her close to 600 fellow members.

Both she and Ferguson are security officers; other APSUE members include food servers, teaching assistants and technology workers.

“Since we are so diverse, it’s easy for the district to sow division, our goal is to raise morale and build unity.”
