School Safety Agents are the frontline in keeping NYC students and the school community safe. They routinely confiscate weapons and keep those who could harm students outside the school doors. They nurture and maintain the safe environment necessary for our kids to learn and thrive.
Teamsters Local 237 will strongly oppose any proposals that weaken safety in our schools. More than any other group of NYPD employees, SSAs truly reflect the communities they serve. They are our mothers, fathers, sisters, grandmothers and neighbors. They earn our thanks every day. We owe it to them and our kids to give SSAs the respect, tools and training they need to do their jobs right.
