By now, many of you have learned of the New York Times article revealing that Mayor de Blasio would like to begin bringing 80,000 city workers back into their offices starting May 3.
As of now, the city has not yet met with any of the unions about any such plan. The city MUST confer with unions before bringing members back into any worksites. This is nonnegotiable.
Bringing back all of these workers would affect not just SSEU Local 371 members but all District Council 37 members. DC 37 will be taking the lead in any discussions about any members possibly returning to offices.
SSEU Local 371 will not allow for any cutting of corners when it comes to the safety and health of our members.
We will continue to work behind the scenes and fight hard if needed to make sure that under NO circumstances will any members be sent into hazardous conditions.
