What do we get from these concessions?
a guarantee against layoffs, but merely a layoff “pledge” that’s
Full of holes and exceptions (see Article 21 on other side) and incrediblyBinds PEF to agree to layoffs and not fight against layoffs!Cuomo lied to the contract negotiating team about no layoffs during negotiations.Cuomo is lying to us now about layoffs.
Cuomo’s only focus is to hurt state employees via
SAGE Commission (only goal is to eliminate state employees), Tier 6, PensionReform, . . .
This PROPOSED CONTRACT does nothing but lower our standard ofliving while providing meaningless layoff chatter (see other side)
Is This Fair to Your Family?
Remember all this pain & extortion is because
Cuomo doesn’t want to tax Millionaires!
