Rally for Affordable Housing and Union Construction jobs

Rally for Affordable Housing and Union Construction jobs

Business Manager Mike Prohaska and over 100 loud and proud Local 79 members came out in a blizzard Thursday night to demand union jobs and affordable housing.  Our members stood side by side with CASA and other allies from the Real Affordability For All coalition to makes sure that the 75 block Bronx rezoning serves the needs of Bronx residents, not the needs of irresponsible developers.  The whole City may have heard the chant: Whose Bronx? Our Bronx! And with Local 79 standing strong with more than 500 community allies, it was Our Bronx! We will be continuing to fight to make sure that every rezone in the City serves our members.Stay tuned: the City has only just started to hear our voices. For a video of the rally, click here.
