Union Strong: Because of union power in New York, union members are now able to deduct their union dues on their NYS tax return. This was effective April 2017 with the passage of the NYS budget and signed by Governor Cuomo. Details: Member Resources page

Now that the Supreme Court has voted against municipal worker unions in the Janus versus AFSCME case let’s all stay Union Strong by signing a union card and staying as dues paying union members.
If we don’t we won’t have a union; with no union we won’t have a CSEA union contract. With no CSEA contract we have no salary scale, no steps, no health insurance, no rights, and all other benefits in our contract.
Our union membership is the best form of job insurance.
The U.S. Supreme Court today sided with powerful CEOs, billionaires and corporate special interests against public service workers and everyday working people in the case Janus v. AFSCME Council 31. Despite their unprecedented political attack to use the highest court in the land to do their bidding, their efforts won’t work because AFSCME members are more committed than ever before to stick together.
“This is not just a slap in the face to the working people Donald Trump pledged to lift up, it is a promise broken to anyone who hoped his presidency would be about raising wages, creating good jobs, and giving the forgotten man and woman a voice in their country. The ‘right-to-work’ law his administration has asked the highest court in the land to implement will drive wages down and fundamentally strip working people of the freedom to build power in numbers and negotiate a fair return on their work. “For the Solicitor General’s Office to reverse positions under the Trump administration – when they have argued in support of the Abood precedent twice in the past four years – underscores the fact that this case is a purely political attack on the freedoms of working people. ”
Regular Medical Check-Ups are Important
Because of our CSEA Collective Bargaining Agreement, we have health insurance for ourselves and family members. It’s time to take charge of your health! Schedule an appointment with your health care provider to discuss what screenings and exams you need and when you need them. This link from the Centers for Disease Control has useful information on the value of annual doctor visits. Don’t forget about Dental and Vision check-ups each year also!
