If you recently received a post card in the mail, and in the past two years you have worked or may be employed for one of the contractors that are members of the Contractor Association of Greater New York, known as CAGNY.  The contractors include, Bovis Lend Lease, Plaza, Turner and Cauldwell Wingate.

In 2017, Local 79 will begin contract negotiations with these employers and their association. To strengthen our bargaining position, we are attaching an authorization card for you to sign. Kindly fill-out this card and return it in the self-addressed stamped envelope.

Local 79 is confident in its ability to secure a fair agreement in these upcoming negotiations.  But the negotiations will not be like previous ones.  Membership involvement and support will be critical.  By signing this authorization card, you guarantee that the contractors deal with Local 79 as your representative to the full extent provided by law.

Please sign and return the card as soon as possible.

Should you require any additional information or have questions or concerns contact (212) 465-7973.
