In their annual report to members, The Buffalo Niagara Partnership, a founding partner of Unshackle Upstate, touted some significant advocacy victories achieved in Albany this year that will benefit Western New York employers and the regional economy.

We were proud to work with our friends at The Partnership to deliver real reforms to Workers’ Compensation that will ease employer costs by $400 million next year, and see that ride-sharing is finally brought Upstate. Upstate focused and employer centric advocacy is essential if we are to continue the progress of this past year.
