Our Super can paint various parts in our building and due to his union contract he can paint even more then his previous contract stated. Our basement definitely needs a touch up but he keeps claiming that due to the fact that the paint is chipping a bit it has lead and he can’t touch it. Our basement looks bad and it’s not good when potential buyers come and view the space and building. My question is if there really is lead exposed then why is he working there or others are walking there all day long? Wouldn’t we as a co-op have to have that cleaned up or professionally removed? I think sometimes union members love to make excuses not to do something. Also he used to paint part of the basement and Of course since he hasn’t in a bit it’s chipping away more and more.Join the Conversation Comments (1)
