PAT LYNCH PLEDGES TIER 3 ISSUE WILL NOT GO AWAY

 

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“The equalization of disability benefits for police officers in Tier 3 is an issue that has serious implications for the NYPD regarding future recruitment and for public safety in general.  The city cannot expect to ask police officers to risk their lives if they refuse to care for them when they sustain a debilitating injury in the line of duty.   This union is fully committed to doing whatever is necessary to ensure that all of our members are adequately protected.  This is an issue that must be addressed and this union has no intention of letting it go away.”
