These union members build and care for the world around us with their work in infrastructure, health care, and other essential services to help us all.”
He added: “I appreciate the many benefits my family and I have received through my former and current union memberships. I was with UUP (United University Professionals) and NYSUT (New York State United Teachers) when I was teaching at SUNY Canton. Now in my role as Principal Court Attorney for the Franklin County Family Court, I am currently a member of CSEA (Civil Service Employees Association). The connection between unions and supporting families is very clear and personal to me. Thank you, LiUNA – Local 1822!”
