August 19, 2022 — From Long Island to Rochester, PEF’s top officers continued their tour of the state with visits to Regions 1, 2, and 3 in August – stopping at 14 worksites and interacting with more than 800 PEF members.
The officers fielded contract questions, talked about the union’s Fund Our Future initiative, and delivered breakfast or lunch.
“It’s really just our way of saying ‘thank you,’” said PEF President Wayne Spence. “As we prepare for the start of contract negotiations in November, we also want to make sure we know what’s most important to members. Getting out across the state and engaging with our members puts us in the strongest position going forward.”
In advance of planned Town Halls and a member survey, all members are encouraged to email the PEF Contract Team at Contract2022Suggestions@pef.org with what they think should be the union’s priorities in the next contract.”
The statewide officers tour previously made stops in Regions 5, 10, 11 and 12.
