Did you know Jill Furillo our Executive Director is resigning?

I didn’t think so! NYSNA I See You is in receipt of a resolution to develop a process for replacement. It is being circulated for signatures to be voted on at the upcoming convention.

Why a resolution? Well it seems that the Board of Directors is trying to do something very unethical. They are planning to permanently replace Jill with a Board Member Who has NO qualifications. There will be no search! There has been no announcement!

This is the information we have so far: Several weeks ago Jill announced her resignation effective in the spring of 2020. A Board meeting took place where a replacement was discussed. There was a very heated discussion where many members felt a search for an appropriate candidate should take place and anyone who wanted to apply could apply. The people who wanted a search lost the vote. They came up with a “compromise” that would place this board member in the position for a year without any Search or Qualifications.  Don’t you wish you could get a job like that! In fact this person has been getting paid by the union (more on that soon) for over a year and no one can figure out what she does. 

Now some Board members and Rank and File members are circulating a resolution to correct this outrageous situation.

You can print out the resolution here if you want to join the effort.

We will update as information becomes available.

We are a 42,000 member statewide organization. Dont we deserve better than this?
