On December 3, Local 79 Business Manager Mike Prohaska spoke at a Building Trades rally attended by hundreds of members of Local 79 and other Building Trades unions. The rally was called to demand that New York City real estate developers commit to building union, and that they stop working with non-union contractors who exploit their workers and provide unsafe working conditions, as described in a recent front-page article in The New York Times.
