No Constitutional Convention - Training

Wed, May 3, 2017 at 05:30 PM

Every twenty years, New York State is required to give voters the option, via a ballot question, of opening up the State’s constitution in a convention.

A Constitutional Convention run by political special interests would cost taxpayers millions of dollars in an effort to achieve reforms that can occur without creating additional, costly layers of government.  Meanwhile, the protections we’ve fought for and won would be in jeopardy: the right to collectively bargain, pensions, welfare laws, and many others. Public money is better invested in our schools, crumbling infrastructure, and on other vital services.

Join the New York State AFL-CIO; the New York City Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO; and our affiliates on Wednesday, May 3 at 5:30PM at AFSCME District Council 1707 (420 West 45th Street between 9th & 10th Avenues), for a training that will serve to educate union members and staffers about the negative impact of a New York State Constitutional Convention.
