DC 37 Family,

We’re pushing to secure better benefits and higher wages for you– our members who run New York City. We won’t stop fighting until we get the contract you deserve.

We made significant progress pushing the union’s priorities forward during the last bargaining session with the city on Jan. 24. Negotiations are headed in the right direction thanks to DC 37’s Bargaining Committee, but we need your help to put more pressure on the Adams Administration.

The newly renovated DC 37 Dental Center at 115 Chambers Street in Lower Manhattan is a 30-seat facility that offers full-service dental care and advanced dental and periodontal care to members, retirees, and their dependents. The center accepts appointments Mon. to Fri., 8 AM to 6 PM and Sat., 8 AM to 5 PM. To schedule a visit, please call 212-766-4440.

The Education Fund will cover tuition for four courses (up to 16 credits where applicable) in certificate and degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, excluding books and a one-time application fee required by CUNY. Eligible members may opt to participate in one of the following tracks:
