When New York State implemented a sixth tier in the NYS Pension System ten years ago, over CSEA’s very strong objections, they weakened benefits, contributing to the staffing crisis many public employers are now facing. Under Tier 6, public pension benefits are no longer as attractive to recruit and retain workers.
It’s time to improve Tier 6 to better recruit and retain workers, and to enhance benefits for dedicated public workers!
That’s why CSEA is launching our FIX TIER 6 campaign! Urgent action is needed and we need your help!
