“I am supporting United for Change because our membership deserves a louder voice in the decisions made by our union leadership.  I believe there needs to be better dialogue between the members and those who represent us before agreeing to concessions that affect tens of thousands. We deserve leadership that listens to the rank and file and has the strength to stand up to the mayor. We need a leadership that fights for all members and the communities they serve. We want a leadership that will instill hope and change, and we are given this opportunity with United for Change.”
