Raising the standard for good working conditions is like a chain reaction. More people will see their work life can be better.

Filed in

“32BJ SEIU and our 70,000 members in New York applaud Mayor de Blasio and his administration for this  important step forward in the continued fight for paid leave for working men and women. New York City is continuing to lead the way, as this will be among the most progressive policies for public sector workers in any city or state in the country,” said Hector Figueroa, president of 32BJ SEIU. “Our members know how important it is to have a comprehensive paid parental leave policy that allows them to raise their families and be there for their children. We look forward to working with the administration on this policy and others to make workplaces humane, supportive and family-sustaining.”
