CWA applauds Mayor deBlasio's proposal to ensure that the deaths of any city worker from Covid-19 be classified as "line of duty" deaths, entitling their survivors to death benefits and pensions.  We are 100% in support of this effort.  At a cost of roughly $15 million a year, the cost of providing these benefits is a very small price to pay for the sacrifices made by these brave city workers.

However, we know this will be a hard fight.  We will have to win passage of legislation in Albany to make this happen.  The city CANNOT do this on its own.

Dear Traffic Supervisors:

As you know, we have been fighting with the Police Department and the Mayor over your unfair and outrageous exclusion from the Partially Paid Child Care Leave program implemented by the city.

Attached please see the letter we wrote to Mayor deBlasio about this late last week.  As of today, we have not received an answer.
