NYS Lobby and Legislative Conference

The UAW Region 9 and 9A NYS Lobby and Legislative Conference took place in Albany, March 8-11, where we had our biggest delegation in recent memory. Dave Hill, Marivir Montebon, Esther Cohen and I were among those attending. During our trip, we also lobbied on behalf of such NYS UAW issues as ending tax breaks for billionaire real estate developers, making adjunct professors eligible for unemployment compensation, reforming campaign finance, and NWU President Larry Goldbetter met with Assemblywoman Michele Titus, the new chair of the Labor Committee.
