Mayor Lovely Warren interrupts Rochester firefighters union meeting
A dramatic moment Thursday in Rochester during the middle of a firefighter union meeting with community groups. Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren walked in and handed the union leader a plan to end the controversial dynamic staffing program, but the union leader, Eddie Santiago, rejected the proposal, saying that mayor’s plan includes using union funds unlawfully.
The Rochester firefighters union released a statement following the meeting: “Mayor Warren’s proposal on Dynamic Staffing was misdirected to the Rochester Firefighters, Local 1071 union, which has no control over Two Percent funds. The Mayor’s proposal has been shared with the Two Percent Committee and its legal counsel. Attorney Glenn Pezzulo, who has handled this litigation since its inception, has reconfirmed the fact that the use of the Two Percent Fund in the manner proposed by the Mayor would be illegal and a violation of Insurance Law Sections 9104 and 9105 and more importantly, the decision of Supreme Court Justice Thomas Stander which was incorporated into the Settlement Agreement and signed by the City on August 7, 2012
