CWA District 1 (of which the GSEU is a member) is part of a campaign to ensure the $15 minimum wage is passed for all of New York State, including Upstate. The campaign is also seeking to prevent the state government from passing a slower phased in period for Upstate workers. To ensure the $15 minimum wage is implemented ASAP and covers workers throughout New York State, the CWA is asking everyone to call the 4 Upstate politicians listed below. Be sure to mention you are a CWA member. If you have never called a politician before, it is pretty quick and painless. Please call and feel free to pass this information on to anyone you may know.
Neil Breslin- District 44 (Albany)
David Valesky - District 53 (Syracuse)
