PBA President: Mayor de Blasio considers how much other cities pay to negotiate with new Schools Chancellor, but refuses to do the same for NYC Police Officers

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

Today, the Mayor’s Press Secretary made it clear that the Mayor considered how much Miami paid Chancellor Carvalho to decide how much New York City should pay him. But the Mayor refuses to look at how other local police departments and other big cities pay their police officers to help determine how much New York City should pay its own drastically underpaid officers. New York City has fallen upwards of 30% behind other police agencies who police right here in New York, like the Port Authority Police, State Troopers, and the MTA Police. The gap is similar in comparison to the next 20 largest cities. If the 'market rate' is good enough for the Mayor’s handpicked employees, why is it not good enough for the women and men who protect us every day?
