Yesterday I stumbled upon the start of a march by several thousand building workers, members of SEIU Local 32BJ up swanky Park Avenue in New York City’s Upper East Side. The building workers face a contract deadline in less than a week, and have already authorized a strike. At stake are significant cuts to the building workers’ health care and sick days, as well as the elimination of overtime pay. You can read more about the struggle at StandWithBuildingWorkers.org.
Here are some photos of the march; you can find more in my Flickr set.
