LSNYC Members Select Bargaining Team

January 6, 2017

It is time for us to negotiate our next union contract with Legal Services NYC. In preparation, we have sought nominations from each shop of union members who are interested in serving on the bargaining team. This week, our union’s Delegates Assembly considered the statements submitted by each nominee and from the pool of nominees crafted a team of seven bargaining team members and two alternates, with the goal of creating a team that has a variety of strengths and experiences and that fully represents our diverse membership.

The team that will be negotiating LSNYC’s next contract for the union is:

Jay Ackley, grants administrator, Central
George Gardner, attorney, Queens
Melissa Roman, paralegal, Brooklyn
Shardae Rookwood, paralegal, Bronx
Sonja Shield, union president
Genna Teitelbaum, attorney, Staten Island
Lynn Ventura, attorney, Manhattan

Alternates:
Ginny Kozemczak, paralegal, Brooklyn
Mary McCune, attorney, Manhattan
