Fighting ACS Layoffs

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

ACS has given the Union a list of workers who are at risk of layoffs, and the Union has met with the agency to discuss ways to avert cuts, including ways to utilize the targeted staff. The Union has also met with City Council Finance Chair Domenic Recchia and Council Speaker Christine Quinn; the Council was able to avert these same cuts in last year’s budget.

The Union’s Executive Committee also approved spending for a media campaign against the cuts; the Union has identified key community newspapers to place advertising that will reach the audience that cares about social services. An advertisement is currently being developed.
