New York State United Teachers Issues The Union’s Endorsements For The 2020 Federal & State Elections
(ALBANY, NEW YORK) - New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) - which represents more than 600,000 Members in Education, Human Services and Health Care, has issued endorsements in General Election Races for the New York State Legislature and recommended U.S. Congressional candidates for endorsements by the Union’s National Affiliates, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and National Education Association (NEA).
“As cornerstones of our communities, government support for public schools, colleges and hospitals has never been more critical as we continue to weather the effects of the Coronavirus Pandemic,” NYSUT President Andy Pallotta said. “We need elected officials who will stand up for Teachers, School-Related Professionals, medical professionals and those they serve, and we believe this slate of candidates can best deliver for the New Yorkers who will rely on them in the halls of power.”
NYSUT-endorsed candidates receive grassroots support from the Union’s Membership, including phone banking, door knocking and literature distribution.
NYSUT also makes financial contributions from voluntary donations through VOTE-COPE, the Union’s Non-Partisan Political Action Committee.
The full slate of NYSUT’s General Election Endorsements is available for download (PDF).
