Rally with Lilly Ledbetter - Stand Up for Women City Workers - 11 AM @ City Hall
More than 5,000 School Safety Agents, a majority woman workforce represented by Teamsters Local 237, have joined a federal class-action lawsuit against the City of New York to secure equal pay. The agents--who work in our public schools and guarantee the safety of students and teachers--are paid $35,000 annually, compared to the $42,000 paid to male peace officers who provide security for public hospitals and other city agencies.
