PBA ARGUES AGAINST THE CITY PULLING TRUSTEES EXCUSALS TO DO UNION BUSINESS

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said: 

"It is our position that we are entitled to these excusals by law and can employ them in the manner the union designates.  The presumption of innocence that allows police officers to remain members of the NYPD should also allow them to continue to serve the police officers who elected them."
