NiLP FYI: Cuomo to Nominate Peter Rivera for NYS Labor Commissioner
Governor Andrew Cuomo nominated Assembly Member Peter Rivera, a Bronx Democrat New York State Commissioner of Labor Saturday night at the Somos Uno Conference held in Albany this year. Gov. Cuomo received the Visionary Leadership award.
Earlier unions representing teachers and labor didn’t donate to the conference protesting the voting record of some members of SOMOS UNO support for the controversial Tier VI pension Bill. Cuomo and Mayor Michael Bloomberg came to the rescue of the conference donating each $36,000 dollars.
