It appears the MLC has been working overtime like the Grinch.
This is a call to arms.
Please reserve on your calendar the FOLLOWING dates: January 4, 9, 10, 19th. YOU MAY BE ASKED TO CONVENE AT CITY HALL ON EVERY ONE OF THOSE DATES. We will update you next week.
PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW.
It explains that Council Member Carmen DeLaRosa, Chair of Civil Service & Labor and Speaker Adrienne Adams will bring the MLC Admin Code amendment to the floor on Wednesday January 4th. YOU MUST ACT NOW and tell them NOT to amend the Administrative code and remind them the Scheinman paper they all think is arbitration is NOT.It was paid propaganda and his OPINION, and it is NOT legally binding. EMAIL EVERY COUNCIL MEMBER, a sample script is below!
If you need a sample script when emailing or calling the Council.
Hi! My name is_____________ and I am a retiree/ (if you are active/in-service say that!).
We want you to know the Scheinman report is NOT a “ruling”, it’s an opinion and IS NOT BINDING! It’s paid propaganda and they’re hoping the city council falls for it… it is not a decision, it is not a ruling, it is not an award!! The retirees have identified at least $300 million in savings.
OMB knows about some of these savings options, and has NOT implemented them NOR informed the city council… and OMB is unaware of others! Which is worse? HOW CAN THE MAYOR OR THE COUNCIL MAKE A DECISION IF THEY ARE NOT BEING PROPERLY INFORMED BY OMB? DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGE TO THE AMINISTRATIVE CODE! Please reach out to the NYC Organization of Public Service Retirees for real facts!
The MLC doesn’t want you to know they sold off ALL of our healthcare for raises!
Yes, that includes you!
Please remember this as we go into the New Year.
Happy New Year! AND DO NOT AMEND THE ADMINISTRATIVE CODE 12-126!
