600,000 Member NYSUT Reaffirms Single Payer Support

From Unions For Single Payer

The New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) has reaffirmed support for single payer health care. The reaffirmation, which was submitted by Retiree Council 12, calls specifically for support for HR 676, Congressman John Conyers’ Expanded and Improved Medicare for All legislation.

NYSUT is made up of more than 600,000 who work in, or are retired from, New York’s schools, colleges, and healthcare facilities. NYSUT is a union of classroom teachers, college and university faculty and professional staff, school bus drivers, custodians, secretaries, cafeteria workers, teacher assistants and aides, nurses and healthcare technicians.

NYSUT is a federation of more than 1,200 local unions. It is affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the National Education Association (NEA), and the AFL-CIO.
