ConCon: A boondoggle for special interests

Event Date: 
Thursday, May 11, 2017 - 6:00pm

Location

IBEW 25

We ask you and your members to join us Thursday, May 11th, for a training about the impact of a New York State Constitutional Convention, a boondoggle that will be controlled by special interests and lobbyists.  

The training will be hosted by the New York State AFL-CIO and the Long Island Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO at IBEW Local 25, located at 370 Motor Parkway, Hauppauge, NY 11788. Registration and dinner will begin at 6:00 PM.

The NYS AFL-CIO will present the costs, and drawbacks of, a constitutional convention to our members and New York State taxpayers.  Opening the constitution is a real danger to all of us.  We will discuss strategies for informing our members about this ballot question fueled by the right wing and getting them out to vote.

This training is a must for all of us. I look forward to seeing you on May 11th.
