"United We Lead," reflects the mood of unionists throughout the country, who are rallying and protesting threats to collective bargaining and workers' rights, among other issues, said NYSUT President Dick Iannuzzi.
"Our challenge and that facing our delegates and local leaders is how to lead - to balace advocacy and partnering - in such perilous times for unions, their members, our professions and public education in particular," said Iannuzzi, chair of the RA.
"Without question these are serious times for us all. Our task is to develop strategies to meet every challenge and move forward together - united."
About 3,000 union members, visitors and guests will gather at the convention, where elected delegates will consider 58 resolutions and 4 reaffirmations.
