Tell Your State Senator & Assembly Member to Support Crucial Legislation Needed to Avoid Any Future Layoffs
We need all Local 1180 members, retirees living in New York State, and family members to send letters to their New York State Senator and Assembly Member asking them to:
Vote forEarly Retirement Incentive (ERI) legislation so certain members of the city’s three pension systems will be allowed to retire early without a financial penalty.
Grant the City borrowing authority similar to what you gave to the State and the MTA.
Pass a package of revenue bills, including a millionaires’ and ultra-millionaires’ tax, that will generate enough revenue to prevent deep cuts and future layoffs.
To make it easier for you, we have prepopulated the letters on your behalf. All you need to do is click on the name of your Senator and Assembly Member. When you get to the letter page, fill in your name and email, add any additional comments if you want, and click submit. It's that simple.
If you do not know who your Senator or Assembly Member are, you can use the "Senator Finder" and "Assembly Member Finder" links below. Type in your address, and the name and district number of your representatives will show. Then find that district number and/or legislator name in the lists below.
The whole process should take you only a few minutes and will help send a strong message to our Albany legislators that LABOR MEANS BUSINESS.
