MEDIA ADVISORY: Rally and Tour to save Medicare for NYC Municipal Workers

MEDIA ADVISORY: Rally and Tour to save Medicare for NYC Municipal Workers

Press Contact: Bennett Fischer  tremblychap@gmail.com

What: NYC municipal union retirees will gather in lower Manhattan to save their current Medicare Health Care Plan and let the Municipal Labor Committee (MLC) know that switching 250,000 municipal retirees to a for-profit Medicare Advantage Plan is not acceptable!

When: Wednesday June 30, 2021

Time: 12:00 Noon

Who: We are retirees from NYC's Municipal labor unions. Together with our families, in-service union colleagues and other supporters, we are calling on the MLC and City to let us remain in our current Medicare Health Plan without diminishment of benefits. We reject attempts to move us to a privatized plan.

Where: The event begins at 12 noon on the steps of National Museum of the American Indian (next to the Whitehall St/South Ferry train stop). After a brief introduction, we’ll take a "tour” past the offices of the UFT, PSC, OLR, (nearby) DC37 and end up at City Hall at 1:00 pm. There will be short statements at each location from various union members.

Demands:
  • A moratorium on any change to the City's existing Medicare plan.

  • Transparency on all negotiations with decision-making from all members.

  • Right to remain in our current Medicare Health Plan without raised costs or

  • diminishment of benefits.

We condemn MLC's willingness to move away from public to privately managed Medicare.

  • Stop the sell!

  • Save traditional Medicare for NYC retirees!
