CWA Member Killed on the Job in New York

28 Jul, 2022

Johnny Pizarro II, a member of CWA Local 1101, was shot and killed early last week while working as a parking production assistant on Law & Order: Organized Crime in Brooklyn, N.Y.

“CWA offers our deepest condolences to Johnny Pizarro’s family and friends. Our members’ safety is our highest priority and the PPAs perform an inherently dangerous job which entails long hours at night, sometimes by themselves, on the New York City streets securing parking. The union has raised these safety issues in negotiations with the production companies. We will continue to pursue provisions in our Agreements that will provide the safest possible working environment for our members,” said Keith Purce, president of CWA Local 1101.

While the investigation is ongoing, a fundraising page has been set up to help support his family, including his six children.
