Rally June 16 noon: Tell Mayor Adams to Stop the Switch to Medicare Advantage - Rally Also June 15 at 4:30 PM


(the organization that brought the lawsuit against the City to fight the radical change to force us into a privatized Medicare Plan)



At Foley Square in Manhattan at 4:30 pm

Wednesday, JUNE 15th


The President, Marianne Pizzitola and

Secretary, Michelle Robbins

Will be there in person (as retirees live all over the USA)


Retirees will be wearing Blue shirts in solidarity to the mission


DC37 will be holding a rally at 5 pm at the same location to demand a fair wage contract.   But if they resort to what they did the last time in negotiations,  retirees will lose more protection.  We want to tell them not to sell off Retiree Health Benefits for their own  bargaining benefits!


We will be there to remind them WE were in their union  and had their jobs, and they should be protecting retirees, seniors, and the disabled and not sell off benefits we earned and paid for while we were working.  We are disabled 9/11 responders, seniors 70-100 years old and the infirm, who cannot come to a rally.   We need to protect them!

Tell Mayor Adams to Stop the Switch to Medicare Advantage 

Come to our Press Conference and Rally 
Thurs - June 16th - 12 noon
Broadway btw. Murray St. & Park Pl. in front of City Hall Park

We will present a Letter to Mayor Adams signed by City Council and State Assembly members, telling the Mayor to allow all NYC Municipal Retirees to maintain their traditional Medicare and Medicare supplement. Some of the electeds who have signed the letter will be speaking including: Assembly members Robert Carroll, Joanne Simons, Harvey Epstein Yuh-Line Niou;  Council members Christopher Marte, Alexa Aviles, Carlina Rivera and a representative from Jumaane Williams.

Despite the fact that we have won all of our lawsuits, Mayor Adams is proceeding with a legal appeal to change our healthcare into a totally privatized Medicare Advantage Plan. We will not allow the Mayor to put our health and well- being in jeopardy by taking away the benefits we were promised as City Employees.

Hope you can make it.
Share widely with your networks and we hope to see you there.
