A union rally will take place between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the front steps of the county legislative building at 1550 Franklin Avenue.
According to Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA) director of communications Ryan Mulholland, "several thousand union members" from the Civil Service Employees Association, the Nassau County Police Benevolent Association, Nassau Superior Officers Association, Nassau Detectives Association, Nassau Sheriff Officers Association, the Long Island Federation of Labor, the New York State AFL-CIO, and various law enforcement unions both county and statewide are expected to rally against "the anti-American and anti-union agenda of Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano."
The county executive introduced legislation called the “Fiscal Crisis Reform Act” and is expected to layoff hundreds of county workers. Union members state the legislation is a violation of the United States Constitution and threatens their well-being.
The Garden City Chamber of Commerce has alerted businesses of the rally and has advised that many of the participants will be utilizing local parking fields - particularly PF 11. Parking will be restricted on Fourteenth and Fifteenth streets between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. These streets will also be closed during the event. Further, there will also be partial road closures on Franklin Avenue during the event.
