$27/Day Disability Pension Press Conference

UFANYC.org - November 25, 2014

The UFA, more than 300 firefighters, UFOA President Jake Lemonda and Council Member Elizabeth Crowley joined on the steps of New York City Hall to denounce the disgraceful $27/day disability pension that newer FDNY members are forced to exist on, should they become seriously injured or permanently disabled on the job.

Firefighters, councilmembers and the union are demanding The New York City Council take immediate action by passing a home rule message to fix to this urgent public safety crisis for New York City's first responders, so they have the same disability protections as others across the State of New York.
