New York Metropolitan Area Joint Board
The New York Metropolitan Area Joint Board represents more than 2,000 workers in the ladies apparel and light manufacturing industries in New York City. Our members produce apparel for ladies, and children, and hats and uniforms for our military. Most recently, we represent workers from the Working Families Party in the non-profit sector.
We fight to better the working conditions of our members, while we organize new shops. Workers are under attack from all over our country, and we continue to fight and resist that effort. Every year our Joint Board is committed to commemorating the anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire that saw 146 young garment workers lose their lives.Through our work, we want to make sure that tragedies like the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire never happen again.
Workers United holds the community of Uvalde, Texas in our hearts; It is time for sensible and effective gun laws. If not now, when?
Our hearts ache for the mothers and fathers who lost their children, and the entire community of Uvalde, Texas who lost 19 children and two adults to a teenage murderer who had access to guns.
No company in America is busting unions as shamelessly as Starbucks is right now. President Joe Biden and his labor board could put a stop to it — if they choose to.
