1199SEIU, Largest Union in New York, Applauds Gov. Cuomo’s Bold, Progressive Vision for Working People in His State of the State address

January 10, 2017

“The nurses and healthcare workers of 1199SEIU applaud Governor Cuomo’s bold progressive vision that he outlined for working families in his State of State address. Governor Cuomo’s concrete policy proposals are continuing to lead our state toward a better future, including tuition-free college for those making less than $125,000, doubling child care tax credits, expanding voting rights, criminal justice reform, investing in infrastructure, standing up for affordable healthcare, closing the dangerous Indian Point nuclear plant and protections for hard-working immigrants. Now more than ever, we need true, principled leadership as an alternative to the extreme right-wing politicians who are trying to divide our country with fear and hate.”

-George Gresham, President of 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East
