The Constitutional Convention

Share This

In 2037, when the call goes up again in New York for a statewide Constitutional Convention, where will RVCTA be?

The answer lies in you, my union brothers and sisters.

In November, our many New York unions became one voice, defeating the constitutional convention by a historical margin of 82%. That vote sent a powerful message that unions are alive and strong.

What we saved was nothing less than monumental: the safe basis of public education, a state constitution protected from corporate self-interests, and , for us in RVCTA, our union rights to organize and negotiate collectively.

Going forward towards 2037, we must remember the value of unity for our professional and financial well-being, as well as the power collective action has when union members vote.

We must rededicate ourselves to staying STRONG -- TOGETHER -- so that we can have professional standards and a fair quality of life as we practice our avocational love, TEACHING !

In solidarity,

Frank Van Zant
