New York's Cooperative and Condominium Community

Habitat Magazine Insider Guide



Elected officials joined union members Wednesday at a rally in Brooklyn to protest what Local 32BJ of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) says are illegal firings by rental, co-op and condominium buildings for workers' union activities and to avoid wage obligations mandated by a tax abatement.

The protest at the Arias Park Slope rental apartment building at 150 4th Avenue in Park Slope highlighted what the union says are 92 properties in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan — including 36 condos and six co-ops — that are reneging on obligations agreed to in exchange for 421a tax exemptions. Among these provisions is a prevailing wage requirement for employees working eight or more hours a week.
