March Madness is in full swing. Are you checking your brackets to see how many of your picks made the Sweet Sixteen? While you're at it, take a minute to also check out NYSUT's fun spin on March Madness. This year we are allowing people the chance to vote on their favorite benefit of being in a strong union.
This year, the real madness is that anti-union forces are fighting to undercut our voice, our values and our union. They have funded a case before the Supreme Court that threatens our ability to fight for working families.
Our NYSUT Sweet Sixteen bracket highlights all of the things that we have fought for over the years. If you're having trouble choosing whether to vote for collective bargaining, retirement security, health coverage, or legal representation, imagine a future where we lose them all.
This is a fun time of year, and a great way to highlight the things we value. But make no mistake – the real champions are the hard working men and women who are fighting to defend our voice, our values and our union. That is why I am sticking with our union, and I hope you are too.
