Local 3621 files lawsuit against FDNY for discrimination against our members.
Time’s Up For Discrimination Against Our Members
This morning, we filed a class action lawsuit in United States District Court for the Southern District of New Yorkagainst the City of New York, the FDNY, and the Department of Citywide Administrative Services, identifying a longstanding pattern that has led to discrimination in the promotional process.
“Our members deserve proper recognition for their work, irrespective of their race or gender, just like anyone else.” said our President, Vincent Variale.“The City is not served by promoting less qualified applicants. A promotional process that does not include proper measurements for skill and knowledge allows for too much discretion. This has permitted an environment in which discrimination has flourished and resulted in qualified women and non-white members being underpromoted. The absence of a proper policy to ensure the best are promoted regardless of race or gender is a disservice to our members and the City at large.”
We encourage you to read the court filing here here–Time’s Up For Discrimination Against Our Members and then share this news with friends, family and supporters who recognize your valued contributions to the safety and well-being of our great city.
