CSEA President Danny Donohue Outraged at Anti-Labor Groups Harassing Public Employees

ALBANY, NY (07/18/2018) (readMedia)-- CSEA President Danny Donohue issued the following statement today:

"It is an outrage that anti-union groups funded by corporate CEOs and the wealthy have been contacting public employees using their work email addresses to promote their own agenda to defund and bust unions. These groups are exploiting and harassing our members.

This latest attack on working people is a clear violation of employer policy, as well as a violation of workers' privacy."

"Who are these people, anyway? Why do they want me to quit my union? They need to leave me alone. I've made my decision, and I'm sticking with our union," said Kim Wallace-Russo, a New York State employee.

"Our members are angry at this latest attempt to exploit working people and they will not be fooled," Donohue said.
