PEF announces contract vote count

The New York State Public Employees Federation (PEF) at its press conference on Thursday, November 3, at PEF headquarters in Latham, announced that the results of the ballot count for the union’s revised tentative contract agreement with the State.

The vote count announced by AAA was:

27,718 in favor of the proposed contract;

11,645 opposed to the proposed agreement.

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.

As a result there will be no layoffs that would have otherwise taken effect on Friday, November 4, 2011.

PEF members rejected the initial propose agreement presented to them on September 27, 2011. The October 15, 2011 four-year revised proposed contract was accepted by the membership.
