The new law signed by Governor Cuomo now granting the use of previously non-eligible military service time toward pension calculation in the Teachers’ Retirement System (TRS) is still only a halfhearted measure at veteran equalization within the TRS.

Make March a month of action

Already, 2017 has been a year of dynamic action and inspiring solidarity. Our activists did an amazing job leading the charge against Betsy DeVos ... an effort that resulted in bipartisan opposition to DeVos in the U.S. Senate. We have stood strong to tell Washington and Albany that they cannot ignore the needs of public schools and colleges, students and educators. And we will continue to stand together, to advocate and to resist.
