Council 4 Executive Director Sal Luciano had the honor of addressing Class 257, the Department of Correction's newest graduating class of correctional professionals.

"I appreciate and salute your commitment to public safety. I applaud your career decision to help keep our communities safe every day," Luciano said during the Jan. 7 ceremony at the Maloney Center for Staff and Training Development. "Thanks to collective bargaining, you have a voice in your workplace and at the State Capitol, where budget and funding decisions are made. Thanks to collective bargaining, there is safety and dignity and professionalism in your work."

Council 4 represents more than 4,000 front-line prison employees in our NP-4 Corrections Bargaining Unit comprised of AFSCME Locals 387, 391 and 1565.

"You deserve to pin your badges today," Luciano told graduates. "But when you wear them tomorrow, when you go into the prisons and jails, look at some of your older brothers and sisters and know that they worked hard in their union, to make what you do safer."
