PEF Region 8 Supports Hotel Trades Council’s Picket at the Hilton Albany

Members from several agencies with offices in downtown Albany met at the NYS Education Department for a march down to the Hilton Albany to protest the egregious contract offered by the owners of the Hilton Albany! We support our fellow workers in their fight for a fair contract without givebacks on healthcare, wages and pensions.

Region 8 Makes a Difference at Habitat for Humanity

IMG_3935Had a great day volunteering at the Albany Habitat for Humanity ReStore, made and served lunch to the volunteers and crew at both the store and the worksite on Orange St in Albany. So proud of all of the volunteers and so very grateful that Region 8 has so many caring members ready to step up and volunteer to help their fellow citizens. That’s what being a Union Member is all about! Service to one another and to the community at large!
