    That is a question, Gregory Floyd, President of Teamsters Local 237, posed at a recent gathering. But he knew that the answer was right in front of him. 20 School Safety Agents from Stuyvesant High School were being honored for their heroism during the October 31 terrorist attack that left 8 dead and many injured. The worst assault in New York City since 9-11 was met with countless first responders who aided the injured and the dead. First on the scene were School Safety Agents who called the NYPD and EMS. Due to the swift actions of the Agents, a police officer shot the perpetrator, ending his shooting spree, and medical teams tended to the victim.

  • We Weren’t Conned

    Radio show “Reaching Out With Gregory Floyd” featured a conversation with Mario Cilento, President of the NYS AFL-CIO and Vincent Alvarez, President of the NYC Central Labor Council on the importance of voting “NO” to Con Con.

    Over two million New Yorkers can’t be wrong; they saw Con Con as a con. The Constitutional Convention, Proposition #1 on the recent election ballot, was resoundingly rejected by a margin of 5 to 1, with 83% voting against it. Had the question—which comes up every 20 years—been approved, there would have been a multi-year, multi-million dollar process put in place to convene a convention of delegates from throughout New York State to review and reshape New York’s constitution.

    Esa es una pregunta, planteó Gregory Floyd, presidente de Teamsters Local 237, en una reunión reciente. Pero sabía que la respuesta estaba justo en frente de él. 20 agentes de seguridad escolar de Stuyvesant High School fueron honrados por su heroísmo durante el ataque terrorista del 31 de octubre que dejó 8 muertos y muchos heridos. El peor ataque en la ciudad de Nueva York desde el 11 de septiembre se encontró con un sinnúmero de socorristas que ayudaron a los heridos y a los muertos. Los primeros en la escena fueron los agentes de seguridad escolar que llamaron al NYPD y al EMS. Debido a las acciones rápidas de los Agentes, un oficial de policía disparó al perpetrador, terminando su tiroteo, y los equipos médicos atendieron a la víctima.

Labor Day Parade 2017

From the President

OK, No Metal Detectors in Public Schools. So, what’s YOUR suggestion Mr. Mayor?

altThree students, three families ripped apart. One student is dead; one critically wounded and the other awaits trial. Yet, at a community meeting with Mayor de Blasio, Chancellor Farina and what was termed “parent leadership”, the horrific incident involving a fatal stabbing and a critical wounding inside a Bronx school of two students by another student, who claimed he had been bullied by the two for a long time, never touched on a core question: How did a knife get into a classroom?
