Staten Island Ferry captains to get $1M in back pay under long-awaited contract deal with NYC

Uncategorized / September 4, 2023

Staten Island Ferry captains will soon set sail about $1 million richer under a new deal inked with Mayor Eric Adams after working more than a decade without a contract.

The end of the longstanding contract negotiations — which will cost taxpayers $103 million through 2027 — was announced on Labor Day Monday by Adams and Marine Engineers’ Beneficial Association officials.

“I wanted to make sure we did this right, so we celebrate people who keep our city going, keeping our city moving in the right direction,” Adams said at the press conference on the slip of the St. George Ferry Terminal.
