Because of the snow storm, the Long Island Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO Annual Reception has been rescheduled for this Monday March 27, 2017. The reception will begin at 6:00 PM at the Huntington Hilton. The invitation is below with more information, and we hope to see you there. We've also worked on a number of policy and funding issues as we near the New York State budget deadline.Below you will find some coverage of our recent trip to Albany as a member of the Long Island Lobby coalition to advocate for adequate funding of our public transportation systems in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Be sure to look at Newsday on Sunday for a feature section about Opportunities Long Island, the pre-apprenticeship program that works closely with the Nassau-Suffolk Building Trades and the Long Island Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO.
