On Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2015, Alyssa Colton, an adjunct instructor at the College of St. Rose, gave testimony at a hearing in Albany about single-payer health insurance. The St. Rose adjuncts, who voted to join Adjunct Action/SEIU Local 200United, are currently negotiating their first contract.
The Albany hearing was part of a statewide initiative being led by Assemblyman Richard Gottfried. The Albany event was the last in the series of public hearings; they were also held in Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo, New York City and Mineola.
Way to represent, Sister Colton!
