A MESSAGE FROM EXECUTIVE SECRETARY-TREASURER JOSEPH GEIGER:

Brothers and Sisters
“Our number one priority is to provide good paying jobs for our members. This agreement achieves that—guaranteeing millions of man-hours for union carpenters over several years who will construct over 9 million square feet of new construction. That is why our delegates approved the agreement by an overwhelming majority. The New York City construction market is evolving, the District Council will continue to innovate to ensure our members meet the needs of the market.”

Our brothers and sisters are putting their best foot forward to build a better New York one project at a time.

Hudson Yards is a unique, large-scale project, and our union has secured an agreement with Related to ensure all workers are being treated fairly. Our agreement will:

  • Create 9million sq. ft of new construction
  • Ensure millions of hours of work for NYCDCC members
  • Provide substantial contributions to health & welfare funds
  • Financially support our pension

Fraternally,

Joseph Geiger

Executive Secretary-Treasurer
