Tell the NYC Council to protect our healthcare!

 

Sample Script

 

Hello Council Member _____, my name is _______________.

I am your constituent, residing at _________, and a member of the Professional Staff Congress, the CUNY faculty and staff union. I am calling to express my opposition to amending section 12-126 of the administrative code and to urge you to vote against the proposed changes.

Weakening the administrative code will give the green light to Mayor Adams to violate the longstanding promise of premium free health care the city has made to retirees. It will impose premiums, and force the many retirees who cannot afford to pay thousands of dollars a year onto an inferior Medicare Advantage plan.

Amending the code also has impacts far beyond retirees – this change will open the door to cuts to city worker health insurance in future rounds of bargaining without addressing the underlying issue of rising health care costs.

I urge you not to betray the City’s promise to retirees. Vote no on the Administrative Code change and urge the Mayor to go back to the bargaining table and find a better solution.
