BY: M. of A. Reyes
 
        MEMORIALIZING Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim
        May  2019,  as Workers' Awareness Month in the State
        of New York
 
  WHEREAS, It is the custom of  this  Legislative  Body  to  recognize
official  months set aside to increase awareness of serious matters that
affect the lives of citizens of New York State; and
 
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and  in  full  accord  with  its
long-standing  traditions,  it is the intent of this Legislative Body to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim May 2019,  as  Workers'
Awareness  Month  in  the  State  of  New  York, in conjunction with the
observance of International Workers' Day; and
 
  WHEREAS, Increasing employment has remained a top priority  for  New
York State; and
 
  WHEREAS, This Legislative Body, representing the people of the great
Empire  State,  appreciates  all  workers,  men  and  women,  union  and
non-union, farm workers, and workers in the private and public  sectors,
who  work  every  day  to  make  New  York  more productive and fiscally
healthier and stronger; and
 
  WHEREAS, This Legislative Body also remembers the Haymarket rally in
Chicago in 1886, generally considered significant as the origin  of  May
Day, observing workers' rightful demands for an eight-hour workday; and
 
  WHEREAS,  During this month, the strong union traditions in New York
State as well as the belief in hard work and work ethics for  union  and
non-union  workers  are  proudly recognized and observed as are New York
workers' freedom to organize in unions and  for  collective  bargaining;
and
 
  WHEREAS,  May  1st  is recognized and celebrated across the world as
May Day; now, therefore, be it
 
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its  deliberations  to
memorialize  Governor  Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim May 2019, as Workers'
Awareness Month in the State of New York; and be it further
 
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this  Resolution,  suitably  engrossed,  be
transmitted  to  The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of
New York.
