Rally Against Education Layoffs

Senator Serrano joined District Council 37 on the steps of City Hall for a rally against massive layoffs that would have a negative impact on our local schools. 705 layoffs of Local 372 members have been scheduled for next week, and  765 layoffs occurred at The Department of Education on October 7, 2011. "It is extremely unfortunate that these layoffs are being planned for a district that can’t afford to lose more staff", said Senator Serrano. "Not only will 705 people be unemployed, but our schools will suffer the consequences of losing dedicated parent coordinators and school aides. We must do everything we can to speak out against an action that threatens the quality of our children’s education.”

Senator Krueger's Community Bulletin: August 2011

Message from Liz . . .

Once again our leaders in Washington are fighting over cuts to the deficit, while our economy teeters on the brink of a "double dip" recession. At the federal, state, and local levels, the focus is on cutting programs rather than increasing revenues. But what many of these leaders have chosen to ignore is the fact that this strategy will have radical macro and micro economic and political consequences for decades to come.

State Senator Patty Ritchie and Assemblyman Will Barclay praised the members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and Constellation Energy for reaching an agreement that ended a strike at both Nine Mile nuclear energy plants.

Everyone is breathing a sigh of relief today at this terrific news.”

Lawmakers recently approved the protections after the MTA laid off two employees-turned-soldiers last year as part of drastic cost-cutting measures.

The new law prohibits the state and other public employers from abolishing jobs that are open simply because a worker has been shipped overseas by the military.
