PEF is the state’s second-largest state-employee union, representing 55,000 State employees in the Professional, Scientific and Technical Services negotiating unit (PS&T) and other public and private employees.

All ballots were counted by the American Arbitration Association on Thursday morning, November 3, 2011 at the AAA offices in Manhattan.
