Year in Review
           TWe Never Quit!
hroughout 2016, CSEA members made sure that we never quit at delivering essential services and value to all New Yorkers.
We also stepped up our efforts to engage all of our members in conversation so that we can all build a stronger, better union. These efforts included Never Quit membership blitzes, where CSEA activists and staff worked intensely to reach members at work or at home.
As a new year begins, we are more committed than ever to engage all of you and build energy, urgency and action for our future.
