Federation of Nurses/UFT Lobby Day in Albany

Nurses logo

On Tuesday, May 8, in honor of National Nurses Week, a contingent of Federation of Nurses/UFT members traveled to Albany to lobby for health care issues. We visited members of the Assembly and the Senate, as well as the governor's office, to lobby for bills regarding safe staffing and patient ratios, school nurses in every building and no mandatory overtime for visiting nurses.

Our message was heard loud and clear: Pass these bills now for patient safety in hospitals, schools and home care settings. Together, with the unity and strength of our union voice, we will continue to advocate for patient safety.
