Protecting Public Employees' Personal Information
As a constituent and a proud union member, I urge you to accept language included in the 2020-21 New York State Executive Budget proposal that would enhance the provisions of the Taylor Law to further protect a public employee’s personal contact information.
In the wake of the Janus v. AFSCME decision, last year the Legislature and the governor enacted provisions to prohibit state entities from releasing public employees' home addresses, home phone numbers, personal cell phone numbers or personal email addresses to anyone seeking this information other than their union representatives. This action protects state employees' personal contact information from falling into the hands of anti-labor groups seeking to harass public employees and undermine worker protections.
The language included in the executive budget proposal will tighten the changes enacted last year and further protect a union's ability to meet with newly hired employees during any employee orientation meetings.
I ask that you raise this important issue in conference and support these provisions as part of final 2020-2021 New York State Enacted Budget.
I thank you for your consideration and support of this important issue and would appreciate a reply to my correspondence.
