It All Comes Down To Albany’s 3 Leaders
to Get the Human Services COLA in This Year’s Budget!

The Governor and Legislature only have until Sunday
to get an on time state budget deal by March 31

They made a commitment this week to approve increases for only a portion of the human services workforce


We must make it clear that they must extend that support to ALL of the people we serve and to ALL of the workforce who are dedicated to support them

Call the following today:

Governor Andrew Cuomo at 518-474-8390

Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie at 518-455-3791

Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins at 518-455-2585

and leave the following message

“I’m a registered voter from (your locality) calling to make clear that The Only Way to Address the Crisis Faced by ALL of NY’s Human Service Workers is via A 2.9% COLA!”

Thank you!
