Union Leader of the Year: Eric Allen

I’ve been a union worker for about 8 years. For a nice chunk of that, I’ve been an ASSCR member. Our president is Eric Allen. He’s testified before our New York State Legislature (1 hr 31 mins) . He’s made our worth known to the people in power. The other officers serving with him are excellent. It’s really special to be a part of such a union.

Unfortunately, it would be inappropriate for me to spread most union business over Stenonymous. But I want to say this after witnessing an 8/15/23 meeting: I see a union committed to transparency and understanding. A democratic organization where all of us have a voice. Thank you for all you do, Eric. I know the profession is better because of you, the people working with you, and those that emulate you. As easy as leaders like you make it seem, we know it is not easy.

To any students out there, unionization saved my life. I doubled my income thanks to being in a union. Eric and the union were there for me during a tough time in my life. If you ever get the opportunity to speak to Eric, reach out and take it, because it is a real privilege.
