Local 282 Rallies for Prevailing Wage - Fix 421a Now!

Print

The Teamsters Local 282 Executive Board and membership mobilized to Albany, NY on Tuesday, June 2, 2014 for a rally organized by the New York City Building Trades to advocate for 421a Reform, which should include prevailing wages.

The state gives away over a billion dollars annually in tax breaks to developers with no labor standards attached. Section 421a of the real property tax law will expire next month; it provides property tax abatements to incentivize the construction of both market rate and affordable housing units.

Local 282, along with many of the other building trades, descended upon Albany in support of 421a Reform.

 Public funds come with public responsibility. If wealthy developers are getting breaks, hard working families should too!

Take Action Now to Include Prevailing Wages in 421a Projects!
