PBA to fight for higher NYPD wages outside Mayor de Blasio’s gym in Park Slope

PARK SLOPE, Brooklyn – Members of the country's largest police union will stand outside Mayor de Blasio's favorite gym Monday morning to protest higher wages for the NYPD.

Pat Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, said they plan to interrupt de Blasio's morning workout at the YMCA in Park Slope starting at 7 a.m.

The PBA's wakeup call is "to show the growing frustration with the Mayor and his administration for their refusal to work with police officers to reach a market rate of pay," according to Lynch.

The PBA is NYC's largest municipal police union in the nation and represents nearly 50,000 active and retired NYPD officers.
