Last Tuesday at 12:01 am, Co-Op City’s property management company RiverBay locked out the 500 employees who keep Co-op City safe and clean.
Today, on the one week anniversary of the lockout, the company has accepted the workers’ offer to return to their jobs.
“On the one week anniversary of the Co-op City lockout, I am pleased to announce that RiverBay has accepted the union’s offer to return to work and resume contract negotiations,” said Kyle Bragg, 32BJ Vice President.
“We hope that we can reach a fair agreement that is good for workers and Co-op City residents. The men and women who keep Co-op City running deserve quality health care and a fair wage just as of Co-op City residents deserve top quality service and maintenance—not the mounting piles of garbage and reduced services that they’ve been forced to endure for the past week.”
