NYSUT: New York State United Teachers
Visit NYSUT's Legislative Action Center: Politics impacts every school district and public higher education institution, and the working conditions of every school employee, because laws and regulations affecting every member's terms and conditions of employment are passed by lawmakers and implemented by government agencies in Albany and Washington, D.C. The union's Legislative Department drafts, introduces and lobbies for bills affecting state aid to schools and colleges, licensure, tenure, occupational health and safety, education standards, health care, pension and retirement.
Member Action Center: The MAC is here to help make your voice heard and to build a movement around the priorities that matter most to all of us: education, healthcare, and issues that affect us all as working people. The only way for this to work is through member registration. Select the MAC link. Once there, all you need to do to register is enter your email address. You will then begin to get emails/texts when NYSUT needs you to log on to contact your local legislators through sending faxes and emails. That process is almost as painless as the initial registration. You will be asked to input information including your name and your home zip code. The rest is done for you.
