As we weather this pandemic and respond to the outcry from storm restoration it is important to understand that our collective unions are doing everything in their power to ensure that the speed and efficiency of the utility workforce has the tools to get the job done safely and with adequate staffing levels. The unions that make up the Utility Labor Council are involved in every step of the way in helping our employers improve the way they provide energy to all New Yorkers.

At the same time we are working with the New York State AFL-CIO on a major get out the vote campaign for the upcoming 2020 election. The legislative session in 2021 will be an important one. We will be asking for the general public's help in pushing legislation that can help ensure speedy response to all storms.
