Local 828 President Bess Watts especially encourages Unit officers from MCC, East Irondequoit Schools and the East Rochester School District to attend. "This is a great opportunity for members to interact with other members in similiar work conditions," says Watts. She adds that programs such as this conference can help members gain the tools necessary to improve workplace safety and protect workers and students alike.
It was revealed at the 2009 Annual Delegates Meeting that 26 percent of CSEA members from around New York State work in school settings.
