Doorman Building Strike Deadline Tonight

Buildings throughout NYC are preparing for a doorman building strike. Residents are being issued security passes and strike packages and signing up for volunteer building duties.

Negotiations between the Realty Advisory Board and local 32BJ have resumed this morning. The contract covering 30,000 building workers expires tonight at 11:59 pm.

The union has been running ads featuring doormen with Headline copy: "Its Hard Getting by in New York.....and Only Getting Harder"

They have also been sending Robocalls featuring actress Cynthia Nixon to apartment residents urging them to stand with building workers.

The following statement can be attributed to Matt Nerzig 32BJ Chief Spokesman:

"The time has come for the $587 billion real estate industry to recognize that workers making $40,000 a year need wage increases to make end meet in New York City"

New Yorkers who live in condos and coops receive their building financials annually. The building financials include operating budgets and staff salaries. Most shareholders and condo owners are aware of what the building staff gets paid excluding tips and perks.

The last strike by building workers was in 1991 also during a recession.
