The Union is celebrating today the election of new progressive leaders for the City of New York. We congratulate Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio, Comptroller-elect Scott Stringer, Public Advocate-elect Letitia James, Brooklyn DA-elect Ken Thompson, Brooklyn Borough President-elect Eric Adams and the newly elected members of City Council.
AFSCME President Lee Saunders informed SSEU 371 on Oct. 10 that the international union has upheld the Executive Committee’s suspension of Vice President for Grievances and Legal Services Lloyd Permaul pending the outcome of charges.
Reminder: The deadline to comply with the health care audit is today. See here for more information.
We can make history tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 5. Don't forget to vote: Bill de Blasio for Mayor, Scott Stringer for Comptroller, Letitia James for Public Advocate and Ken Thompson for Brooklyn District Attorney. Also, don't forget to vote your important City Council races!
The Union is urging members to support Ken Thompson for Brooklyn DA on election day, Tuesday, Nov. 5. Members can volunteer to get out the vote by going to campaign headquarters at 1015 Fulton Street at the corner of Grand Avenue (C train to Clinton/Washington).
Campaigning will be going from early morning until the polls close.
The Citywide election is coming up. DC 37 has some important information pertaining to labor's get-out-the-vote message. See the attached file for details.
