Message from President George Bloom
Bloom on campus!Members of the Education Division, I would like to comment on how proud I am of all of you in getting a good contract and how much I appreciate all of your hard work and support. Your bargaining team worked for months on planning their strategy on how they were going to handle New York State during difficult times. They recognized that the State is no different than any employer; they want more for less. With the issues before them I feel they did an excellent job and without all of you sticking together, this contract never would have happened. Congratulations on a job well done and a special thank to our legal council Bill Schimmel for his direct legal input. Now is the time to celebrate and then we must get ready for the next one - so dig in and lets get it done.
