Statement by Real Estate Board of New York President John H. Banks on SEIU 32BJ Residential Contract Rally

“We are proud that our members are the predominant employers in New York City of private sector union building service and construction workers. The industry has a history of productive collective bargaining negotiations with the building service workers union, in part, because the leaders of the union understand that such agreements are premised on economic reality. We are optimistic that another collective bargaining agreement will soon be reached with SEIU 32BJ and look forward to continuing a strong relationship with the union and its members.”  - John H. Banks, REBNY President
