Brothers and Sisters:
Pensions are the main item of contention mentioned in this article. As I mentioned to the reporter, DC 47 opposes the City’s effort to gets to agree to the salary cap negotiated with DC 33. We stand strong in this as it would adversely impact our members because of the greater average salary difference between DC 33 and DC 47.
We know that there will be attempts made to divide us internally, in order to weaken our resolve. I remain committed to our union and our unity in this process.
The union united will never be defeated!
– Pres. Fred Wright
