Union calls on Senate to do its job after Obama nominates Merrick Garland to U.S. Supreme Court

NYSUT issued this statement regarding the president’s nomination this week:

“We are pleased that President Obama has fulfilled his constitutional obligation and moved forward a qualified nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court. The U.S. Senate should now fulfill its constitutional obligation and give Judge Garland a fair hearing.

“It is vitally important to NYSUT’s membership that the Supreme Court respects the American labor movement, civil rights, public education and affordable health care for all.”
