The word union means we are all together. No one is out there on a limb by himself.

Statement on Death of NYC Window Cleaner

Our condolences go out to the family, friends and coworkers of the window cleaner who fell out of an apartment building in Tribeca this afternoon. He was not a 32BJ member, but we keenly feel his loss. This tragic incident is a stark reminder of the importance of safety regulations, protocols and rigorous training for window cleaners in New York City.
