Working from the NYSUT regional office in Williamsville, about 10 UUP members called hundreds of Western New York voters, asking them to support state Senate candidate Michael Amodeo, who is challenging incumbent Sen. Michael Grisanti.
NYSUT is also hosting phone banks around the state to support Pres. Obama and other union-backed candidates.
