Some Co-Op City officers hope strike increases neighborhood safety
As the Co-Op City PBA strike reaches day three Friday, some officers say they feel stuck in the middle having to weigh their demands against their neighbors? security.
Rosaly Ramirez and Jamie Bernier Johnson say they're among a handful of officers who don't just work, but live in Co-op City. The officers are demanding a new contract with improved pension benefits and staffing levels. Ramirez and Johnson believe their staffing demands will make the community a safer place.
Riverbay Corp. General Manager Vernon Cooper tells News 12 The Bronx that the management is eager to return to the bargaining table, but since the PBA decided to go on strike it's up to the union to resume discussions.
