Notes by Presenters and Conference Participants:

Judy Sheridan-Gonzalez -New York Nurses Association- ER nurse in Bronx-we need to link the SP movement to other issues ie nurses staffing issues, need more than education and bargaining –need action –reaching crisis-cost per capita escalating, hospitals merging (even though they a not for profit), CEO salaries are increasing, hospitals are building big facades, nurses conditions getting worse need to ORGANIZE, UNITE AND FIGHT. Fight hospitals closings, “Walk-on-Boss- actions, NYS is organizing hearings to educate the public.

Josh Pechthalt, CA Federation of Teachers

-it costs schools $1B a year for health benefits for teachers, spouses and pensions-with SP this money could be used to reduce class size and buy materials – labor must branch out and form a broad alliance and support independent political action ie Prop 30
