Rochester, N.Y.-- This just in from Albany-- the Assembly and State Senate both passed budget bills on Monday that did not include Tier 6. Your phone calls, faxes and visits really made a difference. However, Gov. Cuomo is pressuring the legislators to vote on a Tier 6 bill later this week. 
We can't let the middle class come in second place to Wall St. greed! Gov. Cuomo’s so-called pension reform will cut future workers’ pensions by 40 percent, and hand over billions to Wall Street -- the very same people who needed a $4.76 trillion taxpayer bailout in 2009.

Our state legislators know middle class families deserve a secure retirement, but Gov. Cuomo is pressuring them to vote on Tier 6 as part of the re-districting deal---playing politics as usual instead of working on real legislative reforms.

Please join us for lunchtime events this Wednesday--Thursday--Friday in Buffalo and Rochester. We'll be spreading the word with signs and leaflets that Tier 6 is just another Wall St. bailout--one that NY's working families can ill afford.

Join us as we stand up for retirement security
Say NO to Gov. Cuomo’s political games!
