On Friday November 8, the Local, with assistance from DC 37’s Legal Department, filed an Improper Practice, enclosed, with the New York State Public Employee Relations Board. We filed this because of the Administration’s repeated violations of our contract and New York State labor law throughout their contracting out of custodial work.
In sum, the Administration never conducted a labor-management meeting before they contracted out, violating our contract. Furthermore, the Administration refuses to share information regarding the contracting out including the contract with Busy Bee Cleaners, violating State labor law.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact your Union representative.
