 Flag Day weekend. The funds were used to benefit homeless and needy veterans on Long Island. We had a great turnout, and it was a true CSEA member engagement event!
Additionally, CSEA put together our union’s first-ever virtual Comedy Night and I thought it was great! We also played virtual BINGO and a virtual Match Play game in Region One. The members loved it! Adam Acquario served as the emcee of the shows! He was fantastic and funny as heck! Our members did enjoy that kind of engagement.
In closing, Long Island Region One is ready to take off. Like all other Regions in our Union, our members here in Region One
leadership and union officers move on to new opportunities, retire or pass away. Keeping and maintaining our union’s institutional knowledge will be key to successful outcomes in the future.
And today, despite all the challenges we face, CSEA members and all working people have good reason to be proud. Our union and the Labor Movement has proven once again, when tough times and difficult choices appear on the horizon, we continue to deliver on our promise to keep our communities strong and vibrant.
Our members are still performing at a high level. The reality is, we are still settling contracts, advocating for social justice issues, improving health and safety standards, volunteering in our communities, marching in solidarity and organizing new members to strengthen our collective voice.
CSEA members and most working people understand the value of union membership and that is why we remain strong especially during uncertain times. We are still getting it done — but there is still so much more to do.
As we come together virtually and celebrate another Annual Delegates Meeting, we must all take time to remind friends, family and co-workers how much is at stake right now — from our paychecks and benefits
want to get out. They want to mingle and socialize with other members. They want to share their thoughts and ideas about their jobs, our union and life in general. I truly believe we can get there, and we will. The answer is up to us, however. Let’s get better, stay healthy and begin to enjoy life again like we used to. It’s just a shot away. Have fun, everybody and thank you for reading my report.
Respectfully submitted,
Jerry Laricchiuta
CSEA Long Island Region President
to our basic dignity on the job.
My 2021 message to our delegates is this
— if you want to stay employed, enjoy due process, improve your working conditions, beat back anti-union sentiments, want a
fair and just society and save our democracy to win a new day for America’s workers, let’s join together and rise up once again to strengthen and grow our ranks like never before.
For our union’s emerging leaders and new officers, the first step to achieving this goal
is to create a powerful and dynamic CSEA education and training experience with you.
Today, we proudly stand with each other to celebrate all things labor and to protect the rights and values that helped build our union.
And finally, thank you to all our former union officers, activists, emerging leaders and retirees who continue to advocate on our union’s behalf. CSEA represented employees and all workers must always have a seat at the table — because when unions are strong — workers are strong. And when workers are strong — America is strong.
Respectfully submitted,
Steve Healy
CSEA Western Region President
