Statement from NYSDC Chair June O’Neill on Today’s Agreement Between CSEA, PEF and Governor Paterson

NYSDC Chair June O’Neill issued the following statement thanking CSEA and PEF for their support:

During these tough times, each of us – including our unions – is facing unique challenges.  We applaud CSEA and PEF for their willingness to partner with Governor Paterson to reach the deal that was announced today. The agreement will save taxpayers millions of dollars while also protecting our valued state workers from massive layoffs across the state. In addition, the two unions also announced that they will support the Governor as he works to make necessary reforms to the state pension system – paving the the way for the most significant changes the pension system has seen in nearly 25 years.

Today’s announcement, made possible by the collaborative efforts of CSEA and PEF, is an example of what can be accomplished when we come together around a common goal.”
