    Helping members get the results they demand and deserve

    “I believe that the most important thing that I can do as President of Local 237 is to focus on the issues that trouble our members and work to get them the results they deserve. I also think that keeping our members informed on matters that can jeopardize their rights and well-being is critical to helping members make wise choices to protect themselves and their families,” said Gregory Floyd, President of Teamsters Local 237.


    School Safety Agents Victims of Ticket Blitz. Floyd Gets Action.

    For decades, School Safety Agents at Curtis High School on Staten Island were allowed to park on the street in areas designated “no standing school days” using NYPD issued placards. That tradition recently ended when 8 Agents received $115 parking tickets. Teachers have been allowed to park in the school lot and on the sidewalk. With the Mayor issuing 50,000 new parking permits for teachers and principals without identifying new parking spots, the Agents felt they were targeted. Local 237 President Gregory Floyd alerted CBSTV reporter Marcia Kramer to the double standard and she spoke on camera to an Agent–whose identity was concealed. The parking tickets were ultimately rescinded. To view the entire interview go to:

    Agentes de Seguridad Escolar Víctimas de Multas. Floyd Obtiene Acción.

    Durante décadas, agentes de seguridad escolar en Curtis High School en Staten Island se les permitió parquearse en la calle en áreas designadas “no días escolares permanentes” usando letreros emitidos por el DPNY. Esta tradición terminó recientemente cuando 8 Agentes recibieron $ 115 en multas de estacionamiento. A los maestros se les ha permitido estacionar en el parqueo escolar y en la acera. Con el Alcalde emitiendo 50,000 nuevos permisos de estacionamiento para maestros y directores sin identificar nuevos lugares de estacionamiento, los Agentes sintieron que fueron un blanco. El presidente del Local 237, Gregory Floyd, alertó a la reportera de CBS-TV Marcia Kramer al doble estándar y ella habló en cámara con un Agente cuya identidad estaba oculta. Las multas de estacionamiento fueron finalmente rescindidas. Para ver la entrevista completa diríjase a:

From the President

On November 7th Vote NO to a Constitutional Convention

altAlthough the New York State Constitution is 50,000 words, only about 50 words of it are crucial to union members, especially public employees. In Article V, Section 7, it reads:

“Membership in any (public) pension or retirement system…shall be a contractual relationship, the benefits of which shall not be diminished or impaired.”

Also, Article XVI, Section 5, states:

“All salaries, wages and other compensation, except pensions, paid to officers and employees of the state and its subdivision shall be subject to taxation.”

For union members, it is vital that those words be preserved. They guarantee worker safeguards for us and our families that are now in jeopardy.
