PBA President on Mayor's preliminary budget: Not any fairer for City workers

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“Mayor de Blasio has once again made it clear that he will balance his budget on the backs of city workers. The city’s reserves remain stable at record levels, revenues continue to grow across all categories and the Mayor continues to add spending for new programs. And yet the de Blasio administration is asking city workers to pay for their own raises by sacrificing their health care and other benefits. He’s continuing to read from the same script as the greedy corporations he rails against. When our supposedly pro-worker Mayor says he wants to build a ‘fairer city,’ he doesn't mean fairer for those who work for him.”
