, ┬ásummed up their argument, “for a long time without a raise.”

The union had less than a warm relationship with Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s successor and are seeking to set a better foundation going forward.

When asked for specifics the union head said that the union had agreed not to debate the mayor in public. “We think we can figure this out at a negotiating table,” added Mulgrew.
