A Little Bit About NYSPEC
The New York State Public Employee Conference (NYSPEC) was formed in 1977 as a means of bringing together labor organizations having public employee members in New York City and New York State, and forming a unified voice for them. What started as an organization of 13 member unions, today has more than 75 member unions, and we are still growing!
NYSPEC promotes the general welfare of all member organizations and acts as a clearinghouse for legislative issues on behalf of them. We represent the interests of public employees, striving to improve their working conditions, and fighting to preserve and enhance their lives. NYSPEC gives our members a strong voice, not only in the political arena, but with benefit- and service-providers as well. Each year, we hold two major events – an Annual Convention and an Annual Legislative Event – as well as other meetings throughout the year. Our Convention is chiefly a planning session for legislative strategy, while our Legislative Event provides an opportunity to present our legislative agenda to the governor and members of the state legislature in Albany. NYSPEC has become such a prominent player in the labor movement that more than half of New York’s 212 state legislators regularly make it a priority to attend our Annual Legislative Event.
Whether NYSPEC is bringing its message to the New York State Legislature, the New York City Council, or any of the other local governing bodies throughout New York, our elected officials listen. They know that NYSPEC has become a powerful organization of labor leaders representing nearly 1.5 million hard-working public employees and their family members, who VOTE! NYSPEC is a highly effective organization with the power and flexibility to focus exclusively on doing business for the good of its members.
