West Chelsea Walk-Off

New, 5 comments

The six building staffers at 520 West 23rd Street plan to walk off the job today and picket tomorrow. They say that the condo board has made "intimidation attempts" toward building workers as a result of their attempts to join property service worker union 32BJ SEIU. At 520 West 23rd Street, building staffers earn $13/hour; unionized employees at a building across the street earn $21.34/hour, according to Capital. Residents have been told their maintenance fees would go up by 4 percent if workers were unionized. [Capital; previously]
