Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

SSEU Local 371 members—including three victims of a workplace assault—went to Albany with Vice President of Legislation & Political Action Michelle Akyempong June 7 to lobby lawmakers about the Assault Bill, which would make assaults on social service workers a felony. Negotiations are ongoing as to the definition of assault on how long of sentence a conviction would carry.
