Hundreds of Local 79 members joined over 5,000 other building trades’ union members on Wednesday, October 29th for a rally to protest the contractor JDS’s 70-story residential tower that is being built on 57th Street by non-union labor. Union members were joined by a number of politicians, all of whom put forth the same message: There is no place in New York City for non-union rat contractors like JDS. The building trades’ unions will continue to organize and ramp up pressure until all contractors sign collective bargaining agreements that assure fair wages, safe working conditions, and decent benefits for their workers.
