JOINT STATEMENT FROM PBA PRESIDENT PAT LYNCH
AND UFA PRESIDENT STEVE CASSIDY

 

"Late today we each received a brief phone call from First Deputy Mayor Shorris regarding the administration’s new plan for police officers and firefighters severely injured in the line of duty.  Based upon that brief, last-minute phone conversation, the plan is unacceptable and continues to create a second-class citizen status for FDNY firefighters and NYPD police officers, who risk their lives every day to keep New Yorkers safe. Their plan leaves in place a two tiered disability structure with some police officers and firefighters having adequate disability protections and others with inferior benefits.”
