Repairs in a co-opAug 15, 2021

Hi
Do you mean the porter? Is he being paid for these extra jobs/repairs? Are they in a union? I think the porter reports to the management company like the Super. If the Super doesn’t want to do these repairs as a side gig why he is restricting the porter? You should contact your management company. The board doesn’t manage the Super or porter and that’s in my co-op.

We're going through this same exercise in my co-op. It boils down to responsibility and liability. Here are two articles I found that are pretty much on-point:
