Statement by DC 37 Executive Director Henry Garrido on Mayor de Blasio’s plan to guarantee health care for all New Yorkers

“At a time when hundreds of thousands of city residents cannot access the care they need because of underfunding and uncertainty in Washington, DC, the Mayor’s plan puts NYC Health + Hospitals and its tens of thousands of dedicated public health workers, including over 18,000 DC 37 members, on the cutting edge of comprehensive health care delivery. The approach announced by the Mayor ultimately makes the system more efficient, cost effective, and most importantly, will result in a healthier city.”

District Council 37 is New York City's largest public employee union, with 125,000 members and 50,000 retirees.
