Political Action

Stand Up for Public Education, NYSUT and Well Earned Pensions from Ken Drake, Immediate Past President

Political action for N.Y.S. retired teachers can be framed in the following call to arms – when our profession, our union and/or our earned benefits come under attack, it is imperative that we act collectively to stand up for public education, worker’s rights and retirement security.  We must act as one regardless of our political party affiliation to counter those who want to privatize education, to restrict a teacher’s place at the bargaining table and to diminish our pension, Social Security and Medicare benefits.
