PBA WILL CONTINUE FIGHT FOR
EQUAL COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“It is our belief that there should be equal pay and benefits for all police officers wearing the blue uniform of the NYPD.  Deviations in compensation caused by the ill-considered decision of former Gov. David Paterson to veto the Tier 2 renewal legislation has caused an unacceptable inequity among our ranks.  If we cannot achieve equality through the courts, then we will continue to fight to achieve it through negotiations.”
