The benefit–which the union won through negotiations for the 2017-21 economic agreement–is now available to nearly 100,000 DC 37 members who are covered by the contract and work at mayoral agencies, NYC Health+Hospitals, the New York City Housing Authority, and the Dept. of Education.

A key component of the 2017-2021 Economic Agreement was the establishment of the Paid Family Leave benefit for employees in Mayoral agencies, Department of Education, NYCHA, and Health and Hospitals.
