members: This article about the State Comptroller's debate puts
into perspective why we MUST turn out and vote for Tom DiNapoli,
the only candidate standing up for retirement security for public
workers! PLEASE SHARE THIS!!! #CSEA #RetirementSecurity
Tom DiNapoli, NYS Comptroller endorsed by both the CSEA and PEF
unions, talks about the value of the credentialed and qualified
CSEA workers in his office, the record high NYS Pension System fund
balance, and, at the 10 minute mark, defends the importance of
keeping the current Defined Benefit pension system we all
contributed to as municipal workers.
Tom DiNapoli: NYS
Pension Fund Rises to Estimated $180.7 BillionThe New York State Common Retirement Fund’s (Fund) value grew
to an estimated $180.7 billion in the first quarter ending June 30,
2014, according to New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.
The Fund had ended the state’s Fiscal Year 2014 on March 31 with a
value of $176.8 billion. The net growth in the value of the fund
reflects earnings over the quarter, offset by benefit payments.
In August, it lowered
contribution rates by 0.8 percent for most municipal and state
workers and 1.3 percent for police and firefighters.
Seventy eight percent (78%) of retirees with a NYS pension stay
right here in New York after retiring. Those retiree funds
keep adding to the local economies.
Jun 6 2014 Obamacare:
The Cause for Almost 1 Million New USA Healthcare Jobs
Forbes Story Obamacare was once called “The
Job-Killing Health Care Law.” But the latest jobs report suggests
that the broader economy—and the health care sector, specifically—is
adding jobs at a healthy rate. Booming growth in the heath
care industry shouldn’t come as a surprise. The health care sector
was gaining about 25,000 jobs per month in the years before the
Affordable Care Act, and the law’s infusion of newly insured
patients will help bolster providers’ bottom lines.

housing fight to cost Westchester $5.2M in grants:pdf
Communities Also Lose Getting Back Portions of Taxes sent to
community development grants, which go from the county to local
governments and nonprofits to help low-income communities, were
awarded in 2012 but have been withheld along with all the other
rounds of funding since 2011. More than $7 million in grants from
2011 were lost last year.In
order to receive the community development grants, the county is
required to analyze impediments to fair housing, including zoning
barriers. The analysis has become the longest-running dispute in the
implementation of the settlement. The agreement requires the county
to build 750 units of affordable housing in 31 mostly white
communities and take several other steps to remove barriers to
housing choice, such as local residency preferences for affordable
housing. After submitting volumes of information to HUD
and the monitor over several years, the county has stopped working
on the zoning analysis. Instead the county is pursing a federal
court case challenging the loss of the grants. Astorino had wanted
to sue over the 2012 and 2013 grants but the Board of Legislators
refused to authorize a lawsuit.
Hourlies Need Unions Also: 98 Minute Wait for Medical Care
audio report also The laborer, assigned to the Chicago plant that afternoon in November
2011 by a temporary staffing agency, was showered with the solution
after it erupted from the open hatch of a 500-gallon chemical tank
he was cleaning. Factory bosses, federal investigators would later
contend, refused to call an ambulance as he awaited help, shirtless
and screaming. He arrived at Loyola only after first being driven to
a clinic by a co-worker.
