Tell Elected Officials to Stop Harmful Layoffs

Tuesday 22 September 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I am asking you to send this letter to the leaders of the State and City demanding that they support the enactment of an Early Retirement Incentive (ERI). We believe that an ERI would eliminate the need for the proposed layoff of 22,000 city workers. We also support the authorization for the Mayor to borrow money to ease the budget gap. We have prepared a letter that you can sign and send to Governor Cuomo, Senate Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins, Mayor DeBlasio and City Council Speaker Johnson. Assembly Leader Heastie has expressed his support of both initiatives.

This writing campaign is part of the overall campaign to stop the layoffs.

Please share this message with coworkers, family, friends - anyone who is willing to stand with us! We are essential to New York City.

In Solidarity,

President Anthony Wells
