NYCHS is honored to serve as the web archives for the back issues of the NYC Correction Captains Association's newsletter, the Captains' Quarterly. We start with the very first issue of the newsletter launched by Peter Meringolo shortly after becoming CCA president. From each CCA newsletter posted here, NYCHS will select one or two representative articles to excerpt in standard HTML (web) format but will also make available the entire issue in free downloadable and printable Adobe Acrobat format (PDF). As to be expected in a union publication, some articles from these old newsletters reflect labor-management controversies of their day. The views expressed are those of their CCA authors and editors. CCA retains all rights under its newsletter copyright.
by PETER D. MERINGOLO
In April 1991, Donald Cranston retired due to health reasons and I became the president of the CCA. At this point, the executive board of the CCA was realigned and responsibilities were redefined . . . .
Before I list our priorities for the upcoming year, I would like to introduce the experts we have assembled to work for the CCA. . . .
HARRY GREENBERG, Special Counsel: Mr. Greenberg comes to the CCA with many years of experience in labor relations. We intend to keep him very busy with the 20-year pension, contract demands and member grievances.
MORTIMER MATZ ASSOCIATES, Public Relations: As you have seen . . . . already, Mr. Matz will be helping us with our battles. He will also make the Mayor's office and general public aware of the difficulties captains face in the department.
FLOYD HOLLOWAY, Albany Lobbyist: Mr. Holloway,
ARTHUR L STRIER, Legal Medical Counsel: Mr. Strier's counseling services are being expanded to include consultations on Social Security disability claims, workers compensation, personal injury lawsuits, Civil Service Commission appeals, and disability pension awards. Mr. Strier will be available through the CCA office 24 hours a day, seven days a week for emergency consultation.
PRIMARY GOALS OF THE CCA EXECUTIVE BOARD
Let me assure you that the present CCA executive board is committed to serving you better . . . I can't promise a win on every issue, but I can promise a no-holds-barred attempt to gain for the CCA everything it deserves.
