On #LatinaEqualPay Day, women are breaking barriers & building gender pay equity in the construction industry. This past year we trained 380+ women in 40-hours of Construction Site Safety Training, creating a pathway for more women to enter the construction industries.
Yesterday our Nail Salon member leaders took part in the first New York Healthy Nail Salons Coalition’s (@NYHealthySalons) #AllHandsIn Worker Convening since the pandemic! 💅🏽✊🏾✊🏾

If you have received a fake OSHA/SST card from your employer, come to our first-ever buyback today and tomorrow from 9-5 at @ConsulMexNuy.

After Construction Worker Falls to His Death, Advocates Pressure Hochul - Documented
Another construction worker fell to his death while Gov. Hochul waits to pass a law that would introduce hefty penalties for worker deaths.
It is with deep regret to announce the passing of retired Firefighter Michael J. Arriaga of Engine 301 due to post-9/11 related illness. Michael dedicated 38 years to our department and to the people of New York City. Another hero, taken from us far too soon due to the a
The #GrievingFamiliesAct would add a strong incentive for all employers to do the right thing and ensure #workersafety- @NYCOSH @GovKathyHochul
Excited for Day 2 our conference! Takeaway from one of yesterday's workshop: “Every year employers have to display the summary of all the accidents + illnesses that happen in the workplace, visibly posted in English & the language the workers speak.” Luzdary Giraldo, @NYCOSH

🗞️ @Gothamist —Delivery workers are pushing to bump up the min wage for app-based workers $5 higher than the $23.82 preliminary proposal.
This job it’s difficult, it’s complicated. Many have lost their lives…We need a just salary.”@AntonioSolisMtz
Deliveristas call for $5 pay bump as NYC mulls minimum wage hike for app workers
The call comes following a city report that found they earned $11.12 an hour including tips, below the current minimum wage.
Thank you @voteshekar for your support for legal services for immigrant workers, supporting countless workers who get their wages stolen by greedy employers.
Just this weekend I was in Astoria and saw a deliverista get hit by a car. Luckily he was able to talk and was responsive when help arrived, but the danger that these brave workers face on the day to day cannot be overstated. $5 more is the minimum. https://twitter.com/AjcheGustavo/status/1594748426524180486
