Statement From Interim Commissioner Betty A. Rosa, Vice Chancellor T. Andrew Brown and the Board of Regents

“The history of New York State is steeped in the tradition of labor, and for hundreds of years individuals from across the globe have come to our state to work toward a better life for themselves and their families. 

“We can take satisfaction and be especially proud on this Labor Day for the paramount contribution of workers such as teachers, school administrators and staff, school bus drivers, doctors, countless health and mental health care professionals and our state employees throughout the COVID pandemic.

“We thank not only the New Yorkers that worked tirelessly to respond to and keep our state moving during the pandemic but also those that have dedicated their lives to improving living and working standards for all.  We look forward to continuing our partnership with our brothers and sisters in labor.”
