Congratulation you made it. For those that choose to continue, its all icing on the cake from here on. For those that are calling it a day, live long and prosper.
Mr. Ostrowski said he was choosing to retire while his health was still good.
“I don’t want to go out as a sick person,” he said. “I can still go out to an affair with my wife and dance, and I can still throw a ball.” Edward Ostrowski, the head of the New York City sanitation workers union
DSNY 911 Information
Did you know that if you were turned down by the WTC Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) because you waited too long to register, thanks to a change in the law, you may be able to do so now!
If you get certified by the WTC Health Program with a new illness, that will reopen the 2-year period to register a VCF claim and you can seek compensation for the old illnesses that are currently time-barred.
If you think that you might be eligible for a new illness certification, call the Health Program at 888-982-4748 to make an appointment. Once you are certified, you can get the compensation that you deserve for the new illness AND the other illnesses that were too late to claim.
And, of course , if you have been diagnosed with any of the 68 cancers linked to the toxic dust, including skin cancer, you will be able to claim it as well as every other older diagnosed illness.
If you have any questions about your legal rights, I suggest that you contact attorney Mike Barasch for a free consultation. His firm represents more people, and has recovered more money, than any other firm in the country. You can reach Mike at 1-800-562-9190

In Loving Memory
Shop Steward Manhattan 6 Ronnie Holmes has passed on. With that we lost a Brother, a true “Sanman”, a hard working Shop Steward who cared and fought for his fellow Brothers at M6. He was old school and dedicated to his job. He was a good listener who solved problems fairly and with good intentions. May God grant him eternal rest and give his family comfort and peace as they mourn there loss. My condolences and may his memory live on with smiles not tears…. DSNY WORKERS
