NAGE President Holway testifies at GIC Reconsideration Hearing

On Wednesday, January 31st, NAGE President David J. Holway was invited to testify at the Senate Oversight Hearing on the GIC.  Several labor leaders, including SEIU Local 509 President Peter MacKinnon and MTA President Barbara Madeloni, stood shoulder to shoulder against the decision that the GIC made to eliminate several healthcare providers.   

"My hope is that this hearing will shine some much-needed light into the dark corners of the GIC, where budget figures seem to have more value than the lives they represent, and decisions are made unilaterally without regard for, or input from, those affected." - President Holway's powerful words to the Senate on behalf of members effected by the GIC's decision.  

The testimony of President Holway can be found below. 
Please check back for the testimony from MacKinnon and Madeloni.
