“I am pleased to learn that the Public Employees Federation (PEF) approved the most recently negotiated contract, thus averting thousands of layoffs. The failure to approve this contract would have had a profoundly negative impact on Albany County. During these challenging economic times, we must all share the pain and sacrifice. I applaud PEF for their willingness to work with the Governor to reach an agreement that will help move New York forward.”
