BROOKLYN - The New York City Department of Sanitation is set to hire 100 new workers for the upcoming winter rush at the expense of current employees.

City officials say they plan on eliminating 200 supervisor positions. They say 100 workers will retire and not be replaced, and the rest will be reassigned to uniformed street workers.

The union president says each demoted worker will lose about $5,000 in salary. There are 6,000 sanitation workers around the city.

The city says this option is better than layoffs.
