Posted: Friday, May 25, 2012 12:00 am | Updated: 11:14 am, Wed Jun 6, 2012.

    I support Local 94 and Local 32 . The dept of Ed NYC is really getting over on these
    union members. ENOUGH ALREADY !! Pay these members a fair wage!!! The Dept of ED spends MILLIONS ON contractors and consultants and will not pay a decent wage
    to these hard working members!!! WORKERS UNITE !
