A top priority this year will be the fight to ensure that gig economy workers are no longer treated as second class citizens.

On behalf of our 2.5 million members, retirees and their families across New York State, I welcome everyone in the labor movement back to Albany, and I wish each of you a healthy and happy New Year

Throughout the year, we raise our voices together – public sector, private sector, and building trades – which is why the Labor Movement remains Union Strong!

It is only fitting we join together each year to celebrate that commitment to one another.

Albany - Today is the culmination of a decades-long fight centered upon one simple premise: that farmworkers deserve fairness, equality and justice.

Today, justice was finally served.

We will never forget all of the farmworkers who have come forward through the years, many times at great risk to their livelihoods. They had the courage of their convictions to speak up for themselves and for others, to fight for what they believe in.
