August 03, 2015


Newly-elected leaders of the New York State Public Employees Federation (PEF), the state's largest white-collar union, took office this week after being sworn in at union headquarters in Latham.

The new officers are: Wayne Spence, president; Kevin Hintz, secretary-treasurer; Adreina Adams, Peter Banks and Nikki Brate as vice-presidents; and, trustees Maureen Kellman, Maddie Shannon-Roberts and Sarah Lauser.

Spence, the first African-American to be elected president of the Public Employees Federation, said. "This team has been elected to protect what we have and will fight to save jobs and services statewide by uniting with other labor unions."

The union represents 54,000 members in professional, scientific and technical positions.

"As secretary-treasurer,” Hintz said, “I am committed to raising the bar to create more transparency and to restore the union's financial integrity, assuring the membership that their hard-earned dues are spent wisely and judiciously.
