NY CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION on NOV. 7thNY CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION on NOV. 7th, WHAT WILL YOUR VOTE BE?

Under the NYS Constitution, every 20 years the people of the Empire State are asked a seemingly simple ballot question; Shall there be a convention to revise the constitution and amend same?” These twelve simple words that will appear on the ballot will have a huge impact on NYSUT members and every citizen of the state.

Points to Ponder 

  • It will cost hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars.
  • A convention could jeopardize critical, hard earned labor rights including public pensions, collective bargaining and care and benefits for injured and ill workers.
  • New York has in place an amendment process for change that can be used at any time based on checks and balances of power.
  • There is no time limit to the convention and legislators would draw an additional salary for working on the convention.
