    There is a possibility of a rally in Plattsburgh on Saturday. Michele or I will be in touch with details if it happens. If not Plattsburgh, then I’ll be making the drive to Albany on Saturday!

    Hi Betsy,

    Thank you to you and your team for all you are doing to get the word out for the Saturday rallies. The Plattsburgh Rally at noon tomorrow is ready to roll despite the foot of snow we are getting today.

    Many NYSUT locals and fellow union members have contacted me stating they are sending members to Plattsburgh. I will take photos and send them to you. We are ready to Stand to Support Working Families and union rights. Stay strong NYSUT Members and thank you to every union member who is taking the time to stand together on this!!
