Thanks in large part to the dedicated activism of hundreds of NYSUT members and labor volunteers, Long Island teacher Christine Pellegrino won a huge upset victory this week in the special election in New York’s 9th Assembly District. The big win has become national news.
In a note of thanks, Pellegrino said, “When we work together, when we organize, when we fight back, WE WIN!” You can go to the MAC to send a personal message of congratulations and to wish her well in the state Assembly!
