DC 37 Family,

We’re pushing to secure better benefits and higher wages for you– our members who run New York City. We won’t stop fighting until we get the contract you deserve.

We made significant progress pushing the union’s priorities forward during the last bargaining session with the city on Jan. 24. Negotiations are headed in the right direction thanks to DC 37’s Bargaining Committee, but we need your help to put more pressure on the Adams Administration.

Join our Day of Action on Thursday, Feb. 16: Wear green and black if your uniform allows along with the stickers our Field reps are distributing to your workplace. Post a selfie with your coworkers, tag @dc37nyc, use the hashtag #DC37CONTRACTNOW and email photos to our communications team at to be featured on our social media accounts. We need to make it clear that we’re done being patient. City workers need a raise— NOW!

With your support, we’ll head into our next session this month with enough momentum to get a contract. I’ll keep you apprised of significant updates.

In solidarity,

Henry A. Garrido
Executive Director
District Council 37
