Islam Syed, 44, an at-large delegate from Manhattan, has been a traffic enforcement agent for eight years, since just after he moved to New York from Bangladesh. His main focus is “we need to increase our salary. Every agency is getting a better salary than us.” The union also needs to do a better job of representing agents facing command discipline, he adds, and he wants to improve prescription-drug benefits. A family where people are taking medication every day, he says, can easily reach the $3,500 maximum “within two or three months, and then they have to use their own money.”
