NYSTPBA Newsletter Updates from the NYSTPBA Board of Directors Retirement Well Wishes We would like to congratulate NYSTPBA Deputy General Counsel Maria Morris on her upcoming retirement. Many of you have met or spoken with Maria during her nearly 15-year career at the NYSTPBA and will remember her for her no-nonsense style and her strong advocacy for the entire NYSTPBA membership. Maria, we thank you for your hard work, dedication to the NYSTPBA and most of all, your friendship. We will miss you. Troopers Answer the Call in Extreme Weather Conditions Our members working in the greater Buffalo and Watertown regions have been working tirelessly for the last week in the wake of a storm that became a “bomb cyclone,” resulting in blizzard-like conditions and record-breaking snow accumulations, followed by a challenging clean-up process. As always, NYSTPBA members answered the call, and all ranks have pitched in during these extreme conditions. Many Troopers working this past weekend were not able to celebrate the holiday with their families, and we thank them for their service and sacrifice. These are the types of situations the NYSTPBA will highlight during our upcoming contract negotiations, which leads us into the next news item. NYSTPBA Partners with Law Firm for Upcoming Contract Negotiations The NYSTPBA is proud to announce its new partnership with Lippes Mathias LLP, a distinct leader in the field of public sector labor law in New York state. The public sector legal team at Lippes Mathias LLP is distinguished for its work with law enforcement, with over 25 years of experience representing law enforcement labor unions and their members. As chief negotiators for the collective bargaining agreements of some of New York state’s largest public sector law enforcement unions, both now and in the past, the attorneys of Lippes Mathias LLP are uniquely qualified to represent the NYSTPBA and our members in our upcoming negotiation of a successor contract with New York state. A fruitful and efficient contract negotiation process requires not only diligence and determination, but also knowledge and familiarity with the process and the parties involved. The legal team at Lippes Mathias LLP embodies all of these qualities, which is why we are so excited to join forces with them. Happy New Year The entire Board of Directors and the staff at the NYSTPBA would like to wish every member – active and retired – a Happy New Year! We look forward to continuing to serve our members in 2023. This email is an automated notification, which is unable to receive replies.
