PBA PRESIDENT PAT LYNCH ON THE
CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE CITY

 

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

“In these dangerous times for New York City, offering three years of zeros and two years of 1.25 percent raises — far less than the cost-of-living increases — is bad policy for the city and a slap in the face of our police officers, who are shouldering the work of a force that was once 7,000 stronger. With heightened scrutiny placed on police officers by federal mandate and misguided city council legislation, and the threats of crime and terrorism undiminished, it’s time to raise New York City police pay to make it the highest — not the lowest — big-city law enforcement salary in the nation.”
